Small black vase. Foot is wide and flat and gradually widens up towards the shoulder. Two handles begin at the lip of the vase and attach in the center. Two stripes are incised and painted yellow at the shoulder and near the foot of the vase. This yellow paint is slightly faded. A raised flower is molded on one side of the vase. The flower petals are painted orange with a yellow center. The stem and leaves are painted green.
The style of the pot is typical of traditional greek pottery. The distinct vase shape and high handles are similar to that of traditional classical amphorae.
