Two knob-handles with vestigial tails and each with depression on one side, facing opposite ways.
Unmarvered orange trail with overlapping ends round edge of lip. Body covered with closely-set feather pattern of marvered spiral trails of orange and white, mainly in alternating groups, in nine vertical panels, which end, at top and at bottom, in eight well-marked loops.
