Albarello on low everted foot. Earthenware covered inside and out with presumed tin glaze, and transparent glaze beneath the foot. Painted top and bottom with narrow bands of cable pattern and foliage. On one side of the body, an oval panel with St Sebastian, shot with arrows, against a tree. Round this, trophies including a shield with three purple-black fleurs de lis on a dotted yellow-brown ground. Blue ground of the trophies apparently incised.
