Glass with a round foot (broken) and a short stem consisting of a smooth annular knop. The cup has a flared conical body whose surface is covered with a light decoration composed of vertical ribs. Because of the shape and size of its cup, it resembles items inv. 309 and inv. 3803. The decoration is similar to that applied by the anonymous à la façon de Venise draftsman in the sheets for glass-model designs preserved in the Prints and Drawings Department of the Uffizi Gallery.
