Description
Bluish-green bottle with an outsplayed rim, the lip folded upwards and inwards and flattened unevenly on top, a cylindrical neck, triangular body pressed in at four places near the base, rendering it faintly four-sided. The base is flattened and slightly convex in one area making the vessel somewhat unstable. The vessel is blown but no pontil mark.
