Physical description
Green bowl with an out-folded rim, rounded in the flame, straight sides which taper slightly to a convex base and a tall, splayed base ring. The walls are decorated with groups of horizontal wheel incisions, one pair just below the rim, 14 closer together around the middle and another pair near the base. The bowl is blown and the base ring was added as a true ring not a pad, with tooling marks on the exterior; no pontil-mark visible.
