This blackish brown, stoneware rice-bale-shaped bottle is asymmetrical in form. Its neck and mouth are crudely shaped, but its body and base are well-formed. The joint between the outer surface of the base and the body displays traces of having been scraped with a wooden board. The closed end opposite side of the base has a smooth surface, while the rest of the body is decorated by a paddled pattern.
