Old pot made by a woman of Katolsta family. Very heavy, made of clay. A grill or blocked pattern covers the sides of the pot. The neck of the pot has vertical lines carved on it. The base of the pot is flat. The sides of the pot nearing the base are smooth and polished in texture, without design. The inside of the neck is very charred. The pot is cracked in many places. These seem to be repaired by filling them in with an orange colored clay.
