Description
Small, slender jar with a flat base (slightly convex), tall, ovoid body with pronounced shoulder, short, concave neck and everted rim, almost ledge-like but a little too rounded. The exterior is semi-polished. The interior exhibits many cutting rings but is well smoothed. A large section of the neck and rim are missing.
