Description
Cup or small casserole. Short body with wide flaring lower wall and slightly convex upper wall. Short everted rim with plain, rounded lip that slopes inward. Probably regional product.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
2.5YR 5/6 (red); surface fired to gray (2.5YR 4/1). Slightly granular fabric has small, subangular lime chunks and tiny light bits, some glistening. Essentially a cooking fabric.
Preservation comment
One large sherd preserves ca. 25% of rim and body and one handle. Slight abrasion around edges but clean breaks; thin, extensive film of encrustation covers all surfaces.
