A large Luristan glossy orange terracotta vessel with a broad bulbous body that narrows through the neck and into a flared rim. It featrues a short spur that is embellished with a bird’s head. A strap handle, formed in the shape of a stylised animal, connects the neck and the gobular body. Applied pellelts can be seen on the body as well as on the handle, reminiscent of repoussé rivets on paralleled metal wares.
