The round, shallow bowl (2007.4679.a) is orange with small handles on either side that have light green paint. There are two rectangles on either side, between the handles, that are light green and yellow stripes. There is a rosette design stamped around the bowl below the painted decoration and a green leaf design on the interior bottom.
The lid (2007.4679.b) is slightly domed with a small loop handle in the center. There is no lip, so it sits over the top of the bowl rim. The top is decorated with two iterations of a stylized yellow flower with a large yellow leaf on either side and two smaller green leaves on either side.
