On the front, an acrobatic drinker painted in Six's technique. He bends over to the left while drinking from his wine cup (painted white), lifting his left leg up high and bending it to expose his backside and penis. He balances with just his left hand and right foot on the ground. His posture suggests a drunken dare, or a provocation at a symposion.
A reserved band with an ivy pattern runs just below the rim. On the body, the ground line is rendered in red, and a second band runs below it. Further down, three thin black bands, and a frieze of alternating black and red tongues just above two more thin bands. Black gloss is spattered on both the lower and upper reserved ornamental borders, and the painter accidentally smeared one of the black tongues, preserving his fingerprint. The underside of the foot is reserved, save for a black ring.
