The small almost conical pot has a rounded bottom and narrow neck. A spotted frog figure is hugging the pot. There is a stub-like projection opposite the frog and a second one has apparently broken off. There is a painted design between the stubs consisting of two stepped triangles and a leaf shape, all spotted.
