The vase was thrown in two sections that were luted together at the shoulder. It appears that the raised band and striations on the neck were created by a sharp tool used to cut away the leather-hard clay as it was turned on the wheel. The roughly beveled foot-ring reveals a white paste. The bottom is covered by a thin matte glaze. Only the interior of the neck and several spots on the interior bottom are glazed. A small chip is visible on the exterior of the lip.
