This jar is fashioned of a light redware clay fabric. It has a rounded base with a bag-shaped lower body. The sides constrict slightly at the mid-section before widening to sharp shoulders. The rim is short and collar-like and has been cursorily folded. There is a patch of dark discoloration on the lower body, possibly with some resinous residue. The jar is intact.
