The vessel has a broad, cylindrical neck with a simple rim. The neck descends into the body, forming a trough around the neck. The spout is attached to the body and points downward at a 20 degree angle. A groove extends along the topside of the spout. The tip of the spout appears to be broken off. The handle is formed by a bundle of five glass rods which are twisted. One of the rods is blue glass. Thumb-piece attaches along the rim; handle forms a right angle and descends to reattach along the shoulder and body, terminating in a scroll of glass. The base is concave with a sharp pontil mark.
