The object has a square cross-section, possibly broken at the small end. It tapers along the solid square shaft to an acorn-shaped top. The acorn embellishment is separated from the shaft by a narrow neck. The shaft is pieced by a bore lying between 1.6 and 2.0 cm. below the embellished end. The bore is clear of debris and does not distort the profile of the object.
