White ceramic vase decorated with gold leaf and black paint. The vase is longer than it is wide and has an ovular shape. The top edges of the vase dip down into semi-circles approximately 1.5" deep. These features comprise "drapery" at the vase opening. Three layers are lined in gold paint. On one side of the vase, the "Universidad de Onati" is pictured in gold and black. On the other side is a crest with a raven and a deer, topped by a crown, also in gold and black. 1" up from the base of the vase is a 0.5" wide gold strip of vines and flowers that circles the vase.
