Primary Description: 
Translucent medium blue glass, bubbly, milky weathering product over surface with trails of opaque yellow, opaque white and turquoise; core-formed, trail-decorated and tooled. Fragment preserves somewhat less than one-half of the squat globular body of a small jar with a regular series of five opaque white trails wrapped around greatest diameter bordered above with an opaque yellow trail, below with a yellow and turquoise trail, all dragged up at regular intervals to form an elaborate festoon decoration and subsequently marvered in; the shoulder preserves two stumps where a small trail of turquoise was looped over to form a handle.
