This piece and 36.11.9 are said to have been found together. They belong to a large class of unglazed vases that were made during the late eighth and early seventh centuries B.C. They have been found in many parts of the Greek world, particularly in the Argolid. Some are undecorated; others, like these, have motifs executed with what is called a toothed-wheel. The Museum's examples are unusual in having double handles.
