Tin-glazed earthenware vessel in the form of a bath in which is a reclining nude woman holding a cornucopia

Buff earthenware, moulded, tin-glazed, and painted in blue, yellow, ochre, and manganese-purple. The vessel is moulded in the shape of a bath, standing on a splayed, gadrooned foot. Seven shells project from the upper edge at one end. Inside is a moulded figure of a nude woman holding a cornucopia who reclines with her head on the edge of the bath. The details of her body are coloured in ochre, and the cornucopia is blue and yellow, both with manganese-purple outlines. Each side of the bath is decorated with a spray of foliage in blue with manganese outlines, and round the upper edge there are three horizontal bands.
