Dark green, bubbly glass, blown in two parts (vase and foot), and decorated on the exterior of the body with horizontal trailing. The vase stands on a circular, spreading foot, which rises up in the centre into a short hollow stem with a very slight kick inside. The sides of the vase swell gently outwards, and then inwards, before expanding into a wide mouth.
