Neck consisting of three spiral tubes that wind around one vertical central tube and end in cup-shaped mouth with lip pinched to form spout; almost spherical body directly attached to pedestal foot with infolded rim and pontil mark. Second gather applied to body and decorated with 22 canes of white twisted threads that were applied vertically to body, starting at top, just below shoulder, in full relief and sinking into matrix toward underside, where they join at center.
