Description

A jar with two strap handles and opposing horizontal lugs, which have been luted to the vessel wall, not riveted. Opposing sets of three parallel, oblique lines slant downward from the lip to the beginning of the shoulder area. The lines form alternating inverted and upright triangles. Shallow punctates covering the body were created in moist clay by the potter’s fingernails or perhaps the end of a cane withe. The globular jar, perhaps employed to hold food items such as hominy or corn-based stews, is a standard Mississippian form, whose popularity was widespread throughout the Mississippian world between approximately AD 1400 and 1600.
