Ceramic fish made of peach coloured material. Detail on the top is cut into the surface and painted black. White glaze covering the rest of the surface. Bottom has a series of concentric channels cut into it. The outer channel leads to two holes: one in the top left (as observed) in front of the dorsal fin; the second on the top of the dorsal fin. The fish faces to the left. A blob of white glaze is on the lower right of the fish. There is a potters mark in the side above the eye.
