The body of the receptacle is decorated with crests. Floral and fruit scrolls emerge from the crests. The round stepped lid bears a ribbon with fruits on the bottom part and ovals on the top part. The ear shaped handle is decorated with a female torso and bears a bare chested angel at the edge. The handle is connected to the back of the receptacle and the lid.
