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 disc-shaped base-knob. 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. Upper ends of handles in curled back with depressions in their centres facing opposite ways.
Unmarvered trail of mingled light blue and orange round edge of lip. Marvered orange trail dropped on at shoulder and wound down first in three straight and then in two zigzag revolutions above one broad light blue zigzag trail with which it mingles; below, a twofold independent orange trail with overlapping ends. No trail on base-knob.
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.
