The pot has a globular body and a short, straight neck. The neck is decorated with horizontal grooves. The shoulder is decorated with a band of scallops with vertical lines above. One handle spans the opening and there is a handle from the rim to the shoulder on either end of the the larger handle. It is dark green.

Because this is glazed on the outside, it would not be used for cooking.
