The vessel is black with a tall neck, wide spout and two handles on the body of the vessel. In red, a standing figure who appears to be a woman either receives or hands a baby to a seated figure. Behind her there is a rectangular structure which may be a drying rack with something stretched on it. A third figure who appears to be male stands behind the seated figure and looks on. They all wear draping robes. There are floral and geometric motifs along the upper rim of the vessel and bordering the scene.
