Fired clay, Ban Chiang culture. ca. 1st cent. BCE
Distinctive, funnel-shaped mouth; curved, protruding foot with detailed decoration scratched into the underside of the somewhat compressed body. The vessel was produced on a potter’s wheel, as can be recognized in the very consistent form as well as traces left on the inside of the foot. Red clay with corresponding traces as well as crusting due to underground storage. Small area around the mouth reattached, but otherwise very good, original condition.
