A mold-formed cottage-type vase with central cartouche featuring a polychrome domestic genre scene.  A woman in a pink dress, standing at left, cranks a serinette [French for "little canary"], a small barrel organ used to teach songs to canaries.  The a birdcage, housing the canary, hangs above the table, upon which rests both the serinette, and a blue vase contain pink flowers.  Beside the table, a grey cat sits upon a wooden chair with green upholstery. This was also the subject of a 1751 painting by Jean-Siméon Chardin (1699 - 1779) entitled  "La serinette," now at the Louvre.
