Waisted jar with spreading rim and small foot-ring. Earthenware, tin-glazed inside and out. Painted with a woman, presumably Andromeda, chained to a tree or rock; around her is a seascape with land, buildings and mountains, with a spouting dolphin or whale in the sea. Near the foot is a strapwork pattern and the word "RAPHETICOL".
