The cylindrical beaker has an off-white interior and green exterior. The top two-thirds of the exterior is divided into three bands – a thin green one at top, a thin white one, and a wide pinkish-brown one – each delineated by a black line. A repeating frieze of three white rabbits, scampering to the right, intersects these three bands.
