This small hemispherical bowl has been provided with three cylcindrical legs that terminate in slightly pulled feet. The rim is straight. Just below the rim a border of regularly spaced incised dots have been added. The underside of the bowl has been scratched with fairly deeply incised irregular lines to create a rough-textured surface.
