Tapering ring base, rounded at the bottom, from which the body rises in a sharp diagonal, curving sharply approximately at the halfway point, from which it rises near vertically and eventually flares slightly to a plain, rounded rim, just below which are attached two horse-shoe shaped handles, almost round in cross section.

Handles and large semicircular spaces under each handle were also treated with black glaze. Both sides depict an owl flanked by olive sprays.
