This pale cream-colored cup does not have a handle and is decorated on the sides with five horizontal rows of small, low relief pinecones. Each pinecone is surrounded by an arch and has a tiny flower or rosette beneath it, and these decorations are all slightly darkened. There are areas on the sides of the cup showing faint remnants of green pigment. The cup widens slightly as it reaches the rim. Both the rim and the round foot have two ridges and are a deeper gold color than the rest of the cup.
