A mold-formed cottage-type vase with central cartouche featuring a polychrome domestic genre scene.  A woman in a grey top with white polka dots and blue skirt, standing at right, tends to a pink parrot with a blue head perched on a tall stand at left.  She extends her right arm, touching the bird's outstreched proper left wing. In her right hand, she holds a small basket containing something white, which she keeps to her side. To the woman's right, a table atop which sits a blue vase containing a pink flower.
