Object Name

Pot : urn : cordoned

Description

Pot : urn : cordoned This is a small Urn with two very slight pinched-up mouldings. The rim is simple and flat. Externally two lines of cord occur immediately under the rim. This is repeated further down and encloses a multiple chevron pattern all executed in twisted cord. The first raised moulding occurs below this. In areas throughout its circumference it is only very faintly visible. It is separated from the second more pronounced moulding by a broad channel. This vessel has a bucket shape and could be described as a devolved Cordoned Urn. The base is very broad in proportion to the rim diameter. The ware is gritty but compact. It is grey to buff in colour.
