This small to medium-sized jar has a flattened base and a long ribbed neck, which has three thick bands. It was wheel thrown, and is probably a model funerary vessel, which dates to the early Eighteenth Dynasty. It is part of the Woking Collection, which arrived to the Egypt Centre on long-term loan from Woking College in 2012 (Engel 2020).
