Surface decorated with a wavy diagonal cobalt stripes extending two-thirds around the body of the jar. Cobalt stripe below rim. Wonderful form and decoration. This jar is the only of its style and decoration we have seen. Three small recessed spots bored partway into the wall of the rim at some point, probably to adapt the rim to be fitted with a metal closure. 1" in-the-firing contact mark at base. 7/8" horizontal line in rim and some minor rim wear. H 8 1/4".
