The outcurling lip and part of the body of a large marble krater (not a basin), or bowl. The inside of the lip is enriched with convex piped fluting and bead and reel moulding. About 5 cm from the edge of the lip on the inside there is a thickening step which forms the thickened inside of the bowl; the outside is enriched with a guilloche between bead moulding, and the start of large convex fluting about the body.
