Formed from Nilotic clay, the majority of the body with an earthy red-orange tone, the top of the vase encircled with an uneven black band, the entire exterior surface richly burnished. From a small flat base the tall vase widens upwards and curves in before narrowing to a thickened, rounded lip. The interior is black but unburnished. Three fine cracks consolidated, a small chip from the lip restored.
Private collection of a medical Doctor, UK; gifted to them by a client in the mid-late 1970s
