Glazed earthenware vase with four handles in the shape of ribbons, decorated with bright, shiny gold highlighted metallic finish with orange and cobalt blue iridescence over cream-white stannic enamel. The decorative motifs are set out in horizontal bands, dividing the painted base with a thick metallic brushstroke finish that covers it entirely. On it an edging bordered by a double parallel line forming a bright gold highlighted and cobalt blue zigzag outline. Then there is an edging with a repetitive geometricised decoration and a gold highlighted stripe separated by a double parallel line. On the body of the pot there is a wide band that almost reaches the shoulder of the vase, decorated with flowers and small leaves surrounded by branches that surround them like circles. Centred among the handles there are decorative motifs that are larger in size, which form four rhombi set within a sort of flower in gold highlight but drawn out in cobalt blue. On the shoulder, a thick ring in gold. Neck decorated in zigzag in gold highlights and blue.
