Subtly diagonal gilt lines create ground for the body and are painted behind floral sprays and sprigs of large and medium sizes in varying green shades. Decoration also overlaps borders above and below. Foot border contains circular gilt wreaths with 5 dots inside each. The upper border has a gilt floral design with slight double "S"-scrolls, one thicker than the other, interspersed between each flower.
