DECORATION: There are two horizontal engraved lines on the upper vessel body. Below these lines on the vessel body are two sets of hooked arm scrolls that wrap around each other, but do not meet; one of the hooked arm scrolls has a widened excised area at the end of the hooked arm. These hooked arm scrolls alternate with a panel filled with negative and backward S-shaped elements. The panels are separated from each other by either upper and lower triangles that are connected with a single vertical line, or by excised triangles and an excised vertical line with one excised spur (that helps to form part of the negative S-shaped element).
