Color of figure scene and ornament fired red. A maiden, seen in right profile, carries a duck in her extended hands and approaches a grave stele on stepped base. On the other side of the stele is a youth in left profile with his right arm extended. He is draped in a red cloak.
The upper surface of the lip is reserved. On the shoulder beneath a single line is a palmette scheme of three five-petal palmettes entwined in volutes. The central palmette is inverted; the other two are turned toward the handle. The upper border of the picture consists of a meander grouped in threes, alternately leftward and rightward, separated by saltire squares. Two lines run above and beneath. There is a single line under picture.
