Physical description

Ewer with ovoid shouldered body, broad neck and eight-sided spout. Small attachment with pierced hole in the handle. The lid in the form of a saucer with a small rounded knob in the centre. The ewer rim has a small loop at the rim for threading a cord to attach the lid to the corresponding loop on the ewer handle. The lid is slightly bigger than the mouth of the ewer and thus does not sit steadily. Covered with a crackled celadon glaze, undecorated.
