Description

Small Black Vessel

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a globular body, cylindrical neck, rounded rim, 2 horizontal lug handles on the body, and a flat base. There are no molded/modeled additions and no decoration. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior and a smoothed finish on the interior. The vessel was likely fired in a reducing atmosphere as the surface is black and the interior is gray in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2394."
