Gift of M. H. de Young

Bottom flat; strap-like handles with the usual projection at each root. The decoration retains: the series of crisscrossed panels on the handles; the almost zoomorphic rictus of hatched teeth on each side between the handles; separation of the metopes of the rim by a "chequer sandwich;" use of swastikas.
