The object is complete. It is octagonal in shape, with the sides longer than the ends. In profile, the object has a straight wall, with a straight rim lined with a horizontal swollen ring. The top of the rim is very narrow and slightly domed, and has lost some of its glaze. The base is flared and the bottom is flat. The base rests on three small feet arranged in a triangle; they are spindle-shaped, with a constricted body and a swollen base whose rounded fulcrum is unglazed. The object has two horizontal handles, placed at the ends, on the wall and immediately below the ring. The handles are curved in a semicircular arc and have an oval cross-section. Their attachment point to the wall is a circular knob with a concave face. The body is beige with a bluish-white glaze; the decoration is molded and hand-painted in blue. The molded decoration is visible on the rim and handles. The painted decoration is visible on the bottom and inner wall, the outer wall and rim, and the handles. The rim features a domed bulge on its outer surface; the handles, which have been molded separately, are twisted and terminate in a flat knob. The internal background is painted with a long leafy stem in bloom. The inner walls are decorated with a geometric pattern of vertical lines: simple on the corners, multiple with a horizontal line at the ends and on the long sides. The bulge on the outer edge is decorated with a row of vertical lines. The decoration on the outer walls is framed by a double line at the top, below the swollen edge and above the base. The decoration on the long sides consists of three tongues hanging from the top; the central tongue is oval and decorated with a leaf in reserve, surrounded by an oval in reserve, and its perimeter is trimmed with two plant motifs painted in blue. It is flanked by two triangular tongues similarly decorated with a leaf in reserve, from which leafy stems emanate. The ends feature a scroll surrounded by acanthus leaves in the center and sitting on the base; it is encircled by two triangular tongues with a reserved center. The twists of the handles are covered with a broad line, while the face of the buttons is painted blue.
