The shallow bowl has an offset lip, and a small omphalos with a centring mark on both sides. The decoration of the body consists of thirty-two broad tongues, convex on the outside of the bowl and hollow on the inside, worked by repoussť. Just beneath the flaring of the lip is a narrow band of short tongues.
