This beautiful vase has a long cylindrical neck with a circular lid, a rounded belly decorated in relief with many flower petals and two elegant handles.

The two sides of the vase are decorated with an identical openwork design, which represents lotus and papyrus flowers, the symbols of Upper and Lower Egypt.

On each side, three papyrus plants ending with three triangular papyrus flowers are shown emerging from a lotus flower at the bottom.

The vase and the openwork are placed on a large rectangular base with four legs, decorated with openwork geometrical motifs.
