Two sculptured hares are depicted at the point where the handle joins the vessel body. A frog-shaped link lies on the domed lid and joins the handle to the knob of the lid. The lid, handle and link were cast separately then joined together. The vessel can be separated into three sections: the lid, upper and lower part of the vessel body. The upper part, when put upside-down, forms a ku beaker.
