This vessel is composed of a small main body
with a flared rim, supported by three hollow
conical legs. These legs are split and contain
rattles, where they are joined to the body they
are surmounted by charming modeled frogs.
Although the body of the vessel is burnished red,
the legs and the frogs are left matte. This
combined with their sensitively applied and
incised decoration gives the piece a genuine
sense of realism.
