The body of this Wedgwood boughpot is decorated in white relief, with mythological figures including 'Psyche Wounded and Bound by Cupids,' 'Sacrifice of Aesculapius,' and 'Nike and Warrior,' all of which are flanked by sheep, a pair of doves, and trees. Its square base is adorned with palmettes and flowerheads. The circular cover is pierced with apertures to hold individual flower stems in their place, creating a pleasing bouquet.
