Plate with a flaring body, no neck/collar, inward sloping rim, 1 effigy-zoomorphic handle on the rim, and a flat base.

The plate is painted white on the top surface with a band of geometric design across the center in red, white, and black. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior and a burnished finish on the interior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2204."
