Blue painted lines delimit areas of the design, whose elements are outlined with fine black lines. The exterior, in three registers, has a painted border in blue, yellow and red, below which the bowl is incised with diagonal lines to form eight triangles, the lower sides of which are bordered by a broad green, zig-zag line.
