Physical description

Vase of stoneware, slender and baluster-shaped, with a rather square shoulder and narrow rib collar, from which springs a short tapering neck with wheel-rings and roughly modelled ram's heads, spreading to a cup-shaped mouth. The base is hollowed out to leave a shallow foot-ring. The glaze covers only the top half of the vase and inside of the mouth. The lip is ground clean.
