Reddish clay with white grits, white slip.

Tall, funnel-shaped body with almost horizontal shoulder and narrow neck; heavy, thickened lip. Heavy handles, each with a single, broad, longitudinal groove. The bottom of the toe is slightly concave; the fabric in the toe is no thicker than in any other part of the vessel.
