The bowl is rather narrow above the base; it then becomes spherical and ends in a broad cylindrical neck and a splayed rim. The flat handle fits to the neck and the body; the straight pouring lip, which is a later addition, is fitted on to the top. Both the upper and the base have a yellow and a blue border. The bowl is decorated with foliage, flowers, and fruits on a blue background. There is a round field, enclosed by a yellow circle, under the lip, which shows the profile of a bearded man. A similar circle under the handle depicts the figure of a male saint with tonsure, wearing a white shirt and chasuble. Painted in blue, green, ochre, yellow and white.
