The ball-shaped, suddenly narrowing jug has a long, beak-like spout and a stirrup handle on one side, leading down to the body in a twisted snake tail. The surface of the jug is bluish-greenish-yellow, matte both on the inside and on the outside. The shape follows eighteenth century Persian models.
