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 overall glaze, normally a whitish color, is a light brown here, possibly because of less than ideal conditions in the kiln.
