Object Name

Pot : urn : cordoned

Description

Pot : urn : cordoned This vessel is encircled by two cordons. The rim is flat. It has a slight internal overhang. Internal decoration for a distance of 4cm takes the form of a broad multiple chevron enframed by two horizontal lines all in incised lines. Externally decoration is confined to an area of 8cm between the rim and first cordon. It is an unusual motif with broad blank zones followed by vertical panels filled with closely set vertical lines. Some of the interspacing blank zones are narrow vertical panels. The second cordon is applied about half way down the vessel. All the decoration is incised on this vessel. The ware is gritty and friable with a very pitted surface. It is yellow in colour.
