Brown ceramic crock. Crock is an alkaline glazed ovoid stoneware storage jar with a flat edged lip and two earshaped handles on opposing sides near the top. Jar is glazed a dark brown color and is speckled in appearance, due to how it was manufactured. The object is basically cyndrical in shape and tapers outward as it runs from bottom to top, with the widest point just above the middle. Jar then tapers inward until it reaches the top edge and then flattens outward, creating a flat circular shape. The interior, as well as the lower exterior, have pronounced ridges from where the crock was turned on the wheel. Bottom is flat and unglazed. A mark near one of the handles is similar in shape to the number 2, but it is uncertain as to whether or not this is a number.
