"The vase has a reddish-brown covering, apparently glaze. The handles (partly restored) are pairs of ketoi intertwined, painted red and light blue; on the neck an ivy pattern; on the upper part of the body two rows of floral decoration with a meander below. The foot is modern." (Beazley). The floral decoration on the upper body includes numerous sizable palmettes.
