Bottle made from dark brown clay. The bottom is small and flat and the body is rounded. Above that is a very long, thin neck and there is a small lid at the top with a small knob. The bottom half of the pot is covered with impressed designs with a "woven" texture. Just below the neck there are bands of thin, vertical incised lines and impressed dots. The surface of the lid is also covered with impressed texture.
