This bowl has a short cylindrical base and fairly straight sides that turn straight upward near the top. Its rim is narrow and flat. The center of the bowl is painted with a long-beaked stepping bird in profile. The bird is outlined in black-brown ink. It is white with diffuse green pigment on its wing. Surrounding the bird are many white petal-like shapes, all outlined in black-brown pigment. Scattered shapes have dots of blue in their centers. The rim of the bowl has three black-brown stripes. Dots of white pigment punctuate the line in the middle of the rim.
