This ewer has a melon-shaped, voluptuous body. The lip is low and upright, but the body becomes gradually globular and then narrows down from the bottom to the foot. The cylindrical spout is S-shaped, and the round handle is angulate. There is a ring on top of the handle from which the lid can be connected with a string. Some fragments of other objects are attached to the spout. The glaze is evenly painted containing some impurities. The glaze is dark, with some tiny cracks. The ewer was fired as the ground plane was supported with seven fireproof clay doughs.
