Bottle made from dark gray clay, with very thick walls. The bottom is small and round. There is a double neck of two sides that curve outward, then join back up at the top in a single, small opening. Around the body there are incised designs of incised, curve lines that intersect into a chain-like pattern. The necks are decroated with thin, incised lines.
