Bronze Age Incised-groove vase or food vessel


The vase has an angular profile and is decorated entirely with incised grooving. While a herring-bone motif rings the internal rim, the external decoration is zoned. There is a vertical ladder pattern on the rim/ neck, a band of alternate vertical and horizontal panels on the shoulder with a herring-bone design beneath, and the lower body has infilled chevron patterning with a herring-bone motif on the lower section. There is a circular hole in the base. This vessel was found in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork.
