The mold has two chips in the rim and chips on each side of the foot, along with flakes, and roughness.
The oval corn cob mold has a half ear of corn molded into the inside with a surrounding shelf and raised rim. The mold stands on a foot. Splotches of black (probably manganese) sponge decoration color the inside and outside of the upper body. Red ceramic body is coated in a clear glaze.
