About this object

Small jug with a ring base, a round body, a thin and short neck that slightly opens out at the top and is defined by clay ridges. A ridge is also at the base of the neck. The jug has a vertical side handle from the shoulder to the rim, like a strap. The decoration is of the Bucchero type with vertical ribs all over the body and the slip is red. The jug has been restored in areas of the body and possibly joined together by different big sherds. There are a few long cracks all over its body.
