The small, wide bowl is white with a row of black triangles on the exterior near the rim. The interior is painted with a red rectangular outline in the center, then a black outline. There is a block "U" shape, with stepped edges, oriented on the long side of the center rectangle. There is a row of three red triangles that fill the center of the "U." Red triangles, one with a curled end, are sporadically placed in the remainder of the interior sides.
