This jar is fashioned of a light redware clay fabric. It has a rounded base with a roughly cylindrical body (but for a very slight narrowing of the sides at the mid-section). It is topped by a collar-like rim. There are a few sizable limestone inclusions that appear to have undermined the integrity of the exterior surface in some areas, probably during firing.
From Nuri, Pyramid 29 (tomb of Queen(?) Piankhqew-qa), NW foundation deposit. 1917-1918: excavated by the Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition; assigned to the MFA in the division of finds by the government of the Sudan.
