Fourth is a light-orange jar with red-striped designs on a wide body, with three loop handles, a flared rim, and a missing foot. Last is a large blackware jar with a minute footed base, a rotund body with incised curvilinear motifs, a narrow neck, and a rolled and flared rim. A beautiful gathering!
