IRISH ANTIQUITY

Object Name

Pot

Description

Pot The vessel is encircled by three slight cordons and a pair of cordons. It is decorated with twisted cord impressions. The rim is bevelled internally for a distance of 2cm. It has the unusual feature of a slight stepped effect which results in the creation of two raised ridges internally. Decoration is in the form of oblique strokes arranged between two horizontal lines all in twisted cord. Externally two lines of cord occur immediately under the rim, followed by a double lozenge pattern delimited by a further line of cord. The first cordon is emphasised on both sides by a line of twisted cord. This is repeated on the upper side of the second cordon. The third cordon occurs lower down on the body of the vessel than is usual. No further decoration occurs. The cord impression used on this vessel is unusually broad. The ware is smooth and compact and is buff to yellow in colour.
