Painted Vase SP 3385

"The sites F and A-B and some of the other mounds bid fair to yield many more valuable relics and the deep ravines cut by rain water afford convenient places for reaching the earlier strata with comparatively little trouble. One of these ravines immediately to the south of mound A-B was partly explored during the recent operations and disclosed several interesting relics. One is a beautifully shaped but incomplete vase (Plate XXI, c) the upper part of which is adorned with a branch of a pipal tree."

- Daya Ram Sahni, 1926. Annual Report Of The Archaeological Survey Of India 1923-24., pg 54. Pl. XXIc.

This pedestaled goblet is a very unique style of pottery that may date to the Late Harappan period. It is not a form that was common during the Harappa Phase.
