The splayed glass stands on a broad foot with cogwheel faceting: a typical example of the Ranftbecher type of Kothgasser's glasses. The middle of the bottom is decorated with faceted and stained star motifs, while the surface of the glass shows a picture of the Hradcin in Prague, with horse cars and figures walking on the square, painted in gray, green, red and blue. The picture is framed with silver varnish and gilt, stylised flowery boughs the top rim is lined with keel arches. There is a gilt inscription above the foot: "Ansicht des Königl. Schlosses in Prag vom Stift Strahof aus."
