Primary Description: 
Conical bowl set directly on a low pedestal foot with folded edge. In the apex of the foot is a double pontil-mark. The bowl is painted with a standard-bearer on a white horse with golden bridle. The knight holds a green banner and is dressed in red trousers, a blue skirt with green seams, and a red cap. The back is filled with two crossing branches with fantasy flowers in yellow, cobalt and sky blue, green, and red. The base of the bowl is adorned with grass leaves, and a twig with pepper-like leaves in blue and red. Below the rim is a gold border etched with two rows of scales, each fitted with a blue enamel dot; this is bounded above and below by lines of red and white dots enamelled on the glass. The foot is decorated with simulated gadrooning rendered by red and blue petal-forms shaded on one side by a dark line. The beaker is signed under the foot with the initials “F. T B.”
