Squat vase with short neck ending in a pronounced lip. Internally decorated in mottled raspberry color with yellow swirls, cased in clear. Overlay of translucent amethyst with irregular edge added after encasement, so that it can be felt by touch. Two orange handles are applied to the lip with rigaree trailing down the body.
