The vase has a wider body that tapers as the vase gets taller. It is painted with wide stripes of green, dark yellow, red-purple and blue-green. There are four iterations of a repeated incised design, painted white consisting of thin white "Xs" with three white triangles on either side, and the negative spaces forming a chevron. There are vertical lines on top of the "X" and one triangle with small horizontal marks on the bottom of the "X."
