Object Name

Pot : urn : cordoned

Description

Pot : urn : cordoned This is a large vessel with two broad cordons. The rim has a steep internal bevel and is decorated by a single line of twisted cord. Externally a broad single chevron between horizontal lines all executed in twisted cord is the main motif used to decorate the area between the rim and the first cordon. The latter is pronounced and very clearly applied. There is no decoration between the first and second cordon which is low and may have been pinched-up rather than applied. The ware is generally smooth and is pink to buff on the body graduating to grey on the upper region.
