A white stripe decorates the black body of the vessel. Base material is unknown, possibly wood. The surface is densely scratched longitudinally. The white stripe rises from the lower extremity in an irregular set of steps to the neck while circling the object twelve times. The thread is flush with the surface. The object transforms from a square cross-section at the foot to a round cross-section at the shoulder. The round neck rises 1.6 cm. to a round rim. The rim edge is squared off. The neck was broken and repaired with glue. The foot is augmented with a broken glob of black glass. The object is not free-standing and weighs 20.2 grams.
