The tapering cylindrical body affixed at the front with a tubular spout painted with a leafy shrub bisecting the otherwise continuous scene of a warrior with a pike, a lady standing before her attendant bearing a parasol, and on the reverse a dignitary seated among four other figures, two of them conversing and the third observing the fourth running away with a butterfly-shaped pennant, all amidst shrubbery continuing across the loop handles at the sides, the slightly sloping shoulder with a floral border repeated on the rim of the domed cover beneath a scene of two seated figures conversing amidst shrubbery around a mushroom-shaped knop painted on the top with a cinquefoil blossom.
