DECORATION: The rim has two broadly-spaced horizontal engraved lines. The vessel body has three repeating curvilinear engraved scrolls with arms that hook around each other, and eventually intersect; there is no central circle at the intersection point, however, as on Wilder Engraved, var. Wilder vessels. The arms of the scrolls are widened with cross-hatched and excised fill areas. Each of the arms of the scrolls originate from the apex of large upper and lower triangles with cross-hatched or excised corners and negative ovals. A white kaolin clay pigment has also been rubbed in the engraved lines.
