Opaque light blue and opaque orange trails, translucent dark blue body and handles.
Broad, inward-sloping rim-disc. Short, cylindrical neck, joining nearly horizontal shoulder in sharp, angular bend; ovoid body, ended in small, well made, subconical base-knob, flattened on underside, and with central depression. Two vertical handles, round or oval in section dropped on shoulder, drawn up and folded inward to junction of rim and neck, upper ends attached to middle of neck.
Unmarvered light blue trail round edge of lip.
Marvered orange trail dropped on at shoulder and wound down in two straight and three zigzag revolutions until joined by a broad light blue zigzag band, on the lower edge of which a little orange appears in parts; below, an independent twofold orange trail with overlapping ends. On base-knob a mixed light blue and orange trail.
Formed on a core; rim-disc, handles and base-knob drawn on and tooled; trails drawn on, marvered (except on lip) and combed. Original core-formed lip visible on inner edge of rim-disc, but does not protrude above it. Coiled base-knob carefully tooled into a subconical shape.
