Bottle with plant motif
Tanasi, Davide; Kingsland, Kaitlyn; Hassam, Stephan; Amico, Frank
Rectangular body is decorated on three sides with a plant motif in which a central stalk supports fourteen berries arrayed along either side of the stalk. The back side is flat and undecorated. A cylindrical neck rises from the square shoulders and supports a rim which is finished by rolling the edge to the inside. A broad, flat handle attaches to the rim at the undecorated back side and falls at a right angle to reattach just below the shoulder. The pontil mark is evident at the indentation at the base. The bottle is free-standing.
