Small jug with globular body and straight tall neck and curved handle, all coated with tomato red ground slip. The surface covered with alternated triangles in rows painted in manganese, dotted in white and filled with yellow and black strokes. Coloured gound slip ares were popular not only in Khurasan and Mazandaran, but also in Kirman province.
