Jar with flattened spherical body and with a constricted mouth, short neck, and corrugated sides. Triangular relief on neck, no decoration. Reddish-brown ware.

Ceramic storage vessels were used throughout the Southwest. They offered extremely effective protection from vermin and humidity. The corrugated walls and indented neck of this jar are particularly well executed, with ten corrugations per 2.5cm.
