Cup or 'qero' with a flaring body, no neck/collar, rounded rim, no handles, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is painted with vertical stripes around the outside of the body in red, white, and black. There appears to be a roughly burnished finish on the exterior and a roughly 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 interior of vessel reads: "1152."
