Decoration On the exterior is a light brown line, followed by a cream line, and another brown one, followed by a lighter brown one and brown dots on a cream background. Then another light brown line and more cream until a dark brown circular shape (unclear because the fragment ends here). On the other side the background is dark brown, almost black, with white lines, almost like petals, with light brown dots in them.
Inscriptions
Condition The exterior is dirtier than the other slide, and slightly scratched at the left end. The other side is in a better condition, with a few areas where paint has been scratched away.
