Description Amongst the vessels illustrated by Armand-Caillat and noted by Ferdière are several large moulded-rim jars of our class 1 and other smaller jars. The fabric of most of these vessels is rich in biotite mica and some contain very large feldspar inclusions - on occasion up to 3 cm in length. At least some of these are TF1.
