DECORATION (INCLUDING MOTIF AND ELEMENTS WHEN APPARENT): The upper vessel body has two widely-spaced horizontal engraved lines above a scroll motif that is repeated four times around the vessel. The scrolls have upper and lower arms that encircle each other, and end in hooked arms. As the two arms of the scroll pass the hooked arm area, the scrolls are widened with cross-hatching. The arms of the scrolls originate from the apex of upper and lower triangles. These triangles have excised corners, and the upper triangles have single inner tick marks or small excised pendant triangles.
