A clay vessel of an ashen colour, turned on a potter's wheel. It has the form of a shallow bowl or a platter on a hollow leg. It has been preserved in its entirety; few imperfections were corrected with plaster. An analysis of the form, the manner in which the vessel was made, and the analogies suggest that the bowl should be associated with the Dacian environment.
The vessel comes from the collection of Władysław Kluger from 1876. A vessel with a high neck and a vertical vice. The nose, eyes and ears, and modelled lips have been glued to the neck of the vessel.
