Vertical panel design with an acanthus rinceau with various figures interspersed between the scrolls. The rinceau springs forth from the lower body of a hybrid satyr figure on the lower right. He carries a female satyr figure on his shoulders while she holds on to the acanthus scroll. In the scroll a flying fantastical creature with a long neck, two snakes and another satyr can further be noted.
