Large water pot of partially glazed ceramic. Globular in shape with a rounded bottom. Two circular aperture at the top (each about 8 cm diameter), with flared rims (one chipped, the other broken and re-assembled with glue) and notched inside and outer edges. The upper part of the shoulder is lightly incised with lines and zigzags following the curve of the two opening. On the shoulder, in the recess of the incised pattern are placed two protruding cylinders, one at the back and one at the front. Under one of those is engraved 'LUSIANA'. The lower part of the pot is not decorated and only partly glazed. The transition between the decorated and undecorated parts of the pot is marked by a line of notches, several incised horizontal lines, two notched horizontal raised lines and a line of incised semi-circles. At each quarter of the pot, on the notched raised lines are placed two pyramidal protrusions.
