Description

Earthenware. The interior, base and the area immediately above it on the exterior are painted yellowish-brown; the rest is tin-glazed off-white. Painted in manganese and bluish-green.
Approximately Shape 6, but with sloping rim and uneven rounded base. Globular with short cylindrical neck.
On opposite sides of the jar, there are oblique strokes between groups of three vertical lines, creating two panels, each containing a zig-zag of three lines with trilobate bluish-green leaves in the spaces. Above and below are pairs of horizontal manganese bands, and, on the neck, a broad bluish-green wavy band and a narrow manganese band.
