CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION White pitcher with handle and snake form wrapping around the top, all painted decoration in black. The snake's head is suggested by two black lines and its body by a row of dots zigzaging around the neck. The end of the snake is coiled up near the handle of the object. Around the neck and lower body of the vessel are additional patterns that are bold and primarily linear, like lightening bolts in shape.
