Reconstructed ceramic pot, ca. 2700 BP
This object was found at Harlow's Point along the shoreline of Lake Auburn in 1881. Fill material was added to reconstruct its original shape ad "tripod legs" added to display the pot.
The potter who made the piece pressed tools into the wet clay to make a distinctive, decorative pattern, a double row of a curved, dotted line that zigzags around the body of the pot.
It was made in the Ceramic Period that began some 2700 years ago.
