Miniature squat neckless jar with collared rim and flat base: complete. The entire vessel was manufactured using the wheel, as is common for this class of pottery. The jar is unslipped and the exterior weathered. The form is very similar to other miniature neckless shouldered jars like 13-12-22c.1, but less restricted around base and generally shorter.
