DescriptionThis large vessel is decorated around the rim and neck with stamped impressions. There are decorative bumps around the rim called bosses. These were made by pushing a stick from the inside of the pot to the outside. Sometimes fingerprint impressions appear on these bumps where the potter held the rim so that the stick would not break through the surface of the unfired pot.
