Irregularly-shaped globe is attached to a neck of 2.7 cm. diameter which rises 1.5 cm. and then flares out. The rim is folded under and finished with a ridge underneath. Where the neck meets the globe, an aperture of small diameter was created by folding the neck in upon itself. A net pattern was created by blowing the item in a mold. The bottom is rounded.
