The bun-shaped, ivory body is decorated with three coiling flower stems with two leaves, springing from the straight foot. The wide and wavy top rim of the vase is shaped of three blossoming iris heads in purple and yellow. The stem of the three bent pink buds scrolls off the body surface, creating three small handles. The decoration is painted in pastel colours underglaze, the greens of the leaves are matte. The Fischer factory copied Pál Horti's hammered metal vase. The colouring was also likely to have been designed by the artist.
