A dish of basket-weave construction all over, including its base. Basically oval in shape, but somewhat elongated and rising towards the two slightly pointed far ends, and with an everted, foliate rim. Red earthenware, with a white slip painted over in green and brown tones, and finished with a transparent, colourless glaze. Floral motifs and curves decorate the rim. Stands on a twisted foot, and the base, too, is glazed.
