Each unit on the bottom strip is decorated alternatley with a cartouche that surrounds a flower and a pair of intertwined leaves. The top strip is decorated with alternate flowers and birds. ##The shaft is divided into two, the bottom is smooth and the top is decorated with vertical leaves and topped by a dome decorated with flowers.##The body is shaped like a compressed globe and is decorated with the same design as the dome. A cylindrical unit surmounts the body and is topped by a floral circlet above which sits the apex shaped like an open winged bird.
