Primary Description: 
Transparent greenish glass; blown, applied, abraded, ground. Conical cup with very slightly convex flaring side, ground, slightly beveled rim and narrow flattened base. Immediately below rim one wheel-abraded horizontal groove; lower down two closely spaced grooves again wheel abraded. One complete and one partial transverse groove appears to connect upper groove and lower grooves, although the intention, never carried out, was to make a zone of slanting lines. Below the pair of grooves, applied ornament consisting of three round or oval blobs, each separated from the next by a triangular cluster of six small blobs, all almost flat.
