This three quarter figure of a laughing woman in voluminous dark green drapery held over the right shoulder by a jewelled gold chain. She wears a lace edged white robe which has been pulled over the right shoulder partly to expose the breasts. In her raised right arm she holds a vine with grapes, one spary of which falls over the left shoulder and is held at the waist in her left hand; while a second is arrnaged round her light brown hair. Round the wrists and in her ears there are small seed pearsls. The background is made of black glass.
