Gourd

The gourd is complete. The wall is oval, while the neck and pedestal are circular. In cross-section, the neck tapers towards the top and is topped by a neck made of a swollen ring and a lip of the same shape, but less high and with a flat top; a groove separates them. The shoulder is sloping, the wall is rounded and the base is narrowed. It rests on a pedestal, the base of which is unglazed. The bottom is recessed and flat. The gourd is fitted with two small horizontal handles on the shoulder, made from a curved flange with a hollowed center and flattened ends on the shoulder. In line with these handles, the pedestal has two small circular holes. There is a mark painted in blue under the base: CNE; the decoration is painted in blue on one side. It features a plant motif and an inscription. The inscription is in the center of the wall and is painted dark blue: ROY. It is surrounded by curved plant motifs.
