Description

Cup or 'qero' with a flaring body, no neck/collar, rounded rim, no handles, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is painted around the body with a repeated design of what appears to be faces with a crown. The faces are painted red and white and are outlined in black. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing and reducing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange and gray in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1161h."
