Abstract

Tear-drop shaped bottle has a ledge rim that is folded inward. The cylindrical neck is constricted at 4.0 cm. below the rim before expanding into the piriform body. The base is slightly concave and the vessel is free-standing. The pontil mark is palpable. Long cracks are visible below the constriction.
