Bowl is broken off at its base from the stem. Both pieces are very burned on the outside, and very little of the original color shows through. The end of the stem is octagonal in shape, further down, it abruptly changes to roundness which continues for the rest of the stem and bowl. The rim of the bowl has two rings carved around it.
