Decoration Large red vase. Rounded body with rounded base; no neck, narrow lip and flat rim. Large lugs, on either side, are perforated to take thread. There are splashes of red all over the pot, it is unclear if this is part of the original decoration or somehow added later, since the splashes have no discernable pattern.
