Knobbed Terracotta Vessel MSR4

"This terracotta vessel with a pronounced knob at the centre has engaged the attention of archaeologists as a "unique find" and was probably used in rituals or ceremonies. Similar vessels have been depicted on Harappan seals and copper plates" according to the ASI description of this object found at Bijnor (MSR 4) in 2017, a site on the border between Rajasthan and Panjab and less than 10 kilometres from the border with Pakistan.
