A very small jar with a globular body, raised on a continuous foot with a wide mouth with a slighly rolled rim. There are two small lug handles right at the rim of the mouth. The clay is a warm red, suggesting that the jar is of earthenware rather than stoneware, with a white glaze that covers all but the lower part of the jar.

A small, flat-bottomed stoneware jar, with nearly straight sides flaring out to shoulders only slightly broader than the base, and narrowing to a short neck with an everted rim. The decoration consists of broad horizontal bands of cobalt blue pigment at the base, on the shoulder, and at the neck. The overall glaze, normally a whitish color, is a light brown here, possibly because of less than ideal conditions in the kiln.
