The globular bowl has two tall pour spouts and a handle. The bowl and spouts are painted white on the exterior. The bottom 1/3 and the interior are red. There is a band of red semicircles around the top of the bowl with four repeats of the same design below. It is two black triangle shapes, together giving the appearance of a semicircle with four small red semicircles on the rounded border. There are two more black triangular shapes at the straight edge, each with a long curving point. The spouts each have two pairs of triangular shapes emerging from the row of red semicircles. The handle is black.
