Jug of the Base-Ring I Ware

  • 1600–1450 B.C.
  • The body of the jug is apple-shaped with a con­ca­ve foot, whe­re­as the round neck ends in a wide open spout. The hand­le atta­ches to the upper should­er of the body and runs away from the neck and bends almost hori­zon­tal­ly onto the upper neck. As is typi­cal of the style, the ves­sel is cover­ed with seve­ral rid­ged bands, which are scrat­ched so that they are imi­ta­ting the shape of ropes. The split band forms a pat­tern and ends in loops. Ano­ther loop wraps around the base of the neck and runs loo­se towards the back. Two more straps span the neck at the point whe­re the hand­le starts. The hand­le its­elf has two lips on its sides.
