Porringer with two handles, decorated in brown, blue and green on a cream ground. In the hollow of the porringer are four rosettes each formed of four simple petal shapes in green or blue amid radiating brown lines. Between the four rosettes are simple sprays of blue or green lines with a row of dots in the same colour emanating from each. Around the edge two concentric brown lines form a border between which are sets of brown, blue and green overlapping chevron motifs.
