DECORATION: There are three horizontal engraved lines on the upper vessel body. The vessel body below these lines has four sets of hooked arm scrolls that curve around each other and meet at a central circle. In this case, the central circles are large swastika-in-circle elements. The hooked arm scrolls have a widened cross-hatched area adjacent to the central circle. The upper and lower hooked arm scrolls begin at the apex of triangles that either have hatched corners (lower triangles) or cross-hatched corners (upper triangles); this cross-hatching has formed a negative oval within each triangle.
