It is made from a relatively highly-fired fine-grained grey pottery with two sturdy "taotie" mask handles. It has been decorated with repeated geometric patterns "cold painted" in an orange pigment.
Width (handle to handle) 26 cm (10.25 inches), height 11.75 cm (4.5 inches). It is in fine condition with no sign of any restoration or repair and just a few minor chips to the rim edge.
