A flattened rim leads to a 4.5 cm. neck that tapers inward and then expands to the globular body. The rim is infolded and flattened. The narrow spout is attached to the shoulder of the body and tilts upward at a 60 degree angle. The tip of the spout is not finished and may have been broken. The bottle is free-standing on a flattened base.
