Description
Green jug with an outsplayed rim, folded upwards and inwards, a cylindrical neck with a faint tool mark at the junction with the body, a truncated globular body and a flat base, slightly concave. It has a flattish 'strap' handle joined from below the rim to the shoulder where it ends in a short, flat tail. The vessel is blown with the handle dropped on at the shoulder, drawn downwards to form the tail and upwards to join the neck; no pontil mark.
