The cylindrical pot has a narrow bottom. The top tapers a bit. It has a wavy rim and is tan with a light purple rim.

The design repeats two times. The facing left is a row of stylized white feathers with black tips on a semicircle of bright orange with three blue triangles. There is a vertical bright yellow-green strip. There are two bright pink triangles with a stepped border and a white semicircle on each of the other borders.
