Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a carinated body, hyperboloid neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base.

The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing and reducing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is gray and buff in color. Fireclouding is present on the body. Evidence of usewear includes residue on the interior. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2858."
