The light orange bowl's interior is decorated with a black circle outline with parallel lines through the center with one zigzagging across. The circle is the edge for four triangular shapes that curve away. Two have a white curlicue and a wavy line and two have a white circle. The band at the rim has long narrow triangles with a curlicue at one end and a second outline.
