Rim sherd from a deep pot (深鉢). Rim edge curves, rising to a projection with a wide tab which turns outward. Below tab is a single hole and four clay knobs placed along the length of the sherd. Raised bands of cord marking, of burnished surface and of parallel incised lines are isolated by incised lines. Interior is smooth. Jomon style. Black to orange in color. The elaborate rim projections and surface decoration are reminiscent of the fanciful vessels of the Middle Jomon Period.
