    CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION A vessel having a round flattened body with a tall narrow neck whose rim flairs to almost two-thirds of the diameter of the body. A loop handle rises vertically from the shoulder, a small tab on the top surpassing the height of the rim. On the opposite shoulder, a tall narrow beak spout extends upward at a slightly oblique angle. The length of this spout is approximately twice the diameter of the body of the pot. A small tab suggestive of an animal head curves from the neck of the spout above the rim.
