Large pot made from light brown clay. The bottom is rounded and the body is large and roudned, with a short straight neck that slants inward to the mouth. Around the shoulder there are long, curved incised lines and where the lines intersect there are four small dots of appliquéd clay. Above that band there are finer, more random cross-hatched lines. The incised lines may have been rubbed with kaolin.
