The fields are separated by golden lines and feature a red and blue mille-fleur pattern each.The edges and handle are decorated with a golden band. The wall of the cobalt blue cup with gold-coloured decorations shows a lady in a light-blue dress behind a gentleman in a pink suit, both embedded in a landscape scene.
