Abstract

The squat body is teardrop-shaped with the spout extending 2.5 cm. beyond the body. The spout is horizontal and drawn out of the body of the vessel. The bottom is flattened and the item is free-standing. The tip of the spout is not finished; it may have been broken. The aperture is very narrow. The cylindrical neck of the bottle rises from the body for 4.7 cm. to the rim. The rim is flattened and in-folded unevenly.
