Pascual 1 similis

Distinctive Features

This form is closely modelled on the Catalan Pascual 1 form. It has a high vertical rim, a cylindrical neck, ovoid body with a solid spike and long rounded handles with a vertical groove. The rim varies at the three production sites mentioned below. At Aspiran it is straight, at Montans it is gently curved, while at Corneilhan the curve is more pronounced (see Laubenheimer, 1985).
