This is a somewhat bulky, oval-shaped basin fashioned of a coarse red clay fabric. The base is flat and splays out slightly at some edges because of the rough modeling. The rim is plan and unworked; near the midpoints of the two longer sides, however, the upper surface of the rim is notched with slanted incised lines. The sides are generally straight. The rim and base show some chipping.
