Description
Wide, cylindrical neck tapers to sharp angle, from which beck flares up to thick, overhanging rim with vertical exterior face and flat top.

Fabric: 2.5YR 6/6, orange. Slip: 2.5Y 5/4, pale yellow but tending to white. Hard, granular fabric, consistently fired, with infrequent to frequent, tiny, angular, light (quartz?), black, and red inclusions, rare, medium, elongated, “calcitic” inclusions, and rare, angular, red rocky bits. Tunisian fabric. Thin, even, matte, granular slip with saline content brushed on all exterior and over rim but apparently not on interior.
