This is a set consisting of a dark gray, high-fired stoneware bowl and its lid. The lid is crowned with a button-shaped knob at its center, which is encircled by two thinly incised lines drawn by a multitooth comb. These lines divide the lid&rsquo;s surface into inner and outer sections, to both of which wave designs have been applied. On each side of the bowl, a long, narrow, band-shaped handle is attached vertically and symmetrically. The base of the bowl is flat, while the part where the base and body of the bowl meet is rounded. The bowl gradually flares upwards. Three broad raised bands surround three parts of the body. A wave design is rendered between each band. Faint traces of paddled patterns are visible on parts of the base.
