This jar has a sinuous globular shape and is particularly striking for its decoration: a garland or collar that surrounds the neck of the jar and some projections on the body of the container itself that give volume to the piece. Due to this unusual decorative development, this jar would not be used as an everyday ceramic but as an integral part of the funeral trousseau.
