"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Pitcher, glazed earthenware. Yellow-ware body molded in tapering cylindrical form with short triangular spout and squared handle. Slight, plain molded band at rim and foot rim. At about one third from the top and a quarter from the bottom are two groups of incised lines. They consist of two straight lines on either side of a zigzag line. The pitcher has a translucent type of flint glaze streaked in a deep and vibrant blues, greens and oranges.
Condition: Overall good condition. Cracks visible on interior and exterior of base. Foot rim has abrasions from use.
