Physical description

Goblet painted in two blues and black. The brown rim is slightly lobed. The neck is divided into eight panels painted with sketchy foliage. A continuous decoration of flowers, leaves, mounds, balustrades and birds covers the body. A band of overlapping round panels leads to a white band and a double circle above the plain white splayed foot. Inside the inner neck are painted scales, trellises and swastikas. A succession of flowers, foliage and a bird fills the well, the base of which has a band of overlapping round panels. In the centre a reserve-painted bird is set between a huge flower and foliage.
