The foot is in two degrees, the stem reserved, the lower member black. The resting surface is reserved, the inner face of the foot black. The underside is reserved, strongly reddened and decorated with concentric circles.

Inside: A female head, left, rising from a calyx amid elaborate floral work, the whole within an ivy border. Abundant use of added white and yellow for details.

A: A woman seated left on a rock and holding a basket in her right hand; in the field are a wreath and two rosettes.

B: A warrior seated left on a rock with a dish in his right hand and a branch in the crook of his left arm. He wears native dress with black-striped tunic and conical hat. In the field are a wreath and a rosette, in the same positions as their equivalents on side A.

There are palmette designs about the handles.
