Uncommon, well sorted, tiny black bits; rare, well sorted, subrounded, small, white (calcareous) particles; rare to uncommon, small golden micaceous flakes visible at surface. Thin, even wash slightly more pale than fabric; consistent wet-smoothing.

One large fragment preserves ca. 30% of upper shoulder, 45% of lower to middle neck, and one complete handle but lacking rim. Very sparse abrasion; worn breaks; very thin but extensive film of encrustation.
