DECORATION: The vessel body has upper and lower hooked arm scrolls that are repeated four times that hook around each other, but only one of the scroll arms ends at a cross and circle element; the others end near to the cross and circle element. The scroll arms begin at the apex of two triangles with hatched corners; these triangles are not positioned at the top and bottom of a body panel, however, and one of the triangles is turned sideways. Incorporated into each of the larger hooked arm scroll motifs are kidney-shaped ovals outlined by hatched lines; two of the ovals are oriented vertically, and twice the ovals are oriented horizontally, and occur below one of the triangles with hatched corners.
