A KA beaker or small "pot" with one register of "kissing triangles" positined on the neck. The exterior color is listed as black, but it is actually mottled with lots of gray and brown shades also present. The interior surface color is much more uniform. The deocration scheme consists of two lines of opposing triangles, the first row pointing towards the base, the row below pointing towards the rim, so that the triangle tips of each row tough one another. These "kissing triangles" are actually drawn via one uninterrupted line across the rows. The triangles are filled with oblique hatches. Circumferential furrows border the double triangle register above and below, creating the illusion of a raised "belt." The surface remains significantly polished, with only 20% of the polish abraded off. The rim is incredibly abraded and chipped on its exterior side, making it impossible to determine "rim shape"--it is most certainly "rolled" or "2-part", however. While the interior surface is listed as Dark Reddish Brown 5YR 3/2, it is actually 3/3. The primary inclusions are very fine sand, but some fine and coarse grains are also observable. Breaks are rough and there is no evident corrosion.
