    A finely attired lady sits on a high-backed chair with footstool as the youth before her offers a wreath and fillet (band). He stands in front of a laver. The attendant behind the chair holds the lady's mirror. Above, Erotes carry more festive paraphernalia and play with a swan. The decoration complements the nuptial associations of the shape. The lid is missing.
