Description

in the shape of a horn representing an animal. The head "a" was obtained only in fragments

Double-spouted jug with an effigy-zoomorphic body, tapered neck, inward sloping rim, 1 bridge handle extending from spout to spout, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is tooth or horn shaped but is missing a section opposite the pointed side. The vessel is painted red, orange, white, and black. The bottom is painted white and there are horizontal lines and dot designs. The spouts and handle are painted red. 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. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of base reads: "3202."
