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.

Marvered orange trail dropped on at shoulder and wound down first in three straight and then in one zigzag revolution above one broad light blue zigzag trail with which it mingles; below, a twofold independent orange trail with overlapping ends. On base-knob, a light blue 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.
