This small, slipped redware globular jar has a rounded base and straight neck with a small crudely modeled lip. It has been decorated with an incised pattern of triple-line decoration that forms a horizontal band of adjoining diamond shapes around the upper portion. Straight, vertical appendages of triple lines extend downward from some of the diamonds. Numerous burn and ash marks discolor the body.
