Description

Red ware. Globular body, cylindrical neck, everted lip one shoulder to neck loop handle with an engraved neck zig-zag line with dents in the angles.

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a globular body, tapered neck, outward sloping rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel has incised lines and punctate dots decorating the neck. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. Fireclouding is present on the base and body. Evidence of usewear includes surface attrition on the bottom/base. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "266."
