The tall round pot flares as it goes up. The mouth is slightly constricted, giving a small shoulder. There is no neck or lip. The top 3/4 has a white field and the bottom 1/4 is left red. It is decorated with four interations of the same design consisting of three sides of a square made from wavy lines. The side without a wavy line has a cluster of three triangles, each with a rounded side opposite a right angle.
