The bowl is intact and complete. The exterior is decorated in five zones; the first, below the lip, a guilloche pattern bordered by a bead-and-reel molding; the second, a frieze of paired lions and leopards rampant to either side of toppling kraters; the third, another guilloche pattern, below which are paired petals; the fourth, of pendant palmettes between acanthus leaves; and the fifth, at the base, an eight-petaled rosette flower with dots at the interstices.
