Deep rounded body with short neck and flat-topped rim, slightly projecting. Two pairs (one preserved) of tie holes for lid through rim. The outside glazed, except for a wide reserved zone at level of greatest diameter. Reserved zone bordered above and below by triple lines, and divided by triple lines into narrow bands filled by zigzag above and below, and a wider zone in the middle, decorated with a band of key pattern filled sometimes with vertical, sometimes with horizontal chevrons, and sometimes with double horizontal zigzags. The top of the rim unglazed, except at outer edge. Low conical lid to fit: more than half missing. Plain edge; two pairs of string holes restored. The handle was a plastic animal (horse) now broken off: the attachments are preserved for tail, both hind feet and left front foot. The lid glazed outside, with a restored zone half way to the handle, decorated with a lozenge chain (interlacing zigzags) between triple bands to each side.
Buff clay and thick solid black glaze, rather shiny and much peeled where burned.
