Abstract

Teardrop-shaped bottle has a flattened bottom with a minor indentation but no palpable pontil mark. The vessel is free-standing although it lists. The neck and rim appear to be built up: evidence of repair material can be seen on the outside of the neck. The same material was used to create the rim. The long cylindrical neck dominates the profile of the vessel. The slender teardrop shape of the body begins below the midpoint of the bottle.
