In the handle zone the decoration is panelled, consisting of a wide central triglyph with isolated semicircle fill. There are traces compatible with tricurved arch flanking the central triglyph.
The interior is undecorated other than a painted lip to the rim. The paint is thick and fairly evenly applied, but has been fired unevenly from red to brown to black.
