Three fragments of a large tall cup. Two rim fragments; fine thin highswung ribbon handle. Straight profile above, rounded below. Buff clay, red-orange paint. Handle has two painted bands at side; underside of handle unpainted. Glazed inside (on one sherd this is worn off); outside, band at rim, and one (?) row of thick-rimmed spirals with double spiral vertical as connector, the inner line of the spiral center forks like a small leaf. The centers of the main spirals may be solid.
