This is a small portion of a broken glass vessel coated with multicolored and gilded enamel.

On the outer surface of the fragment there is a squatting man playing an instrument that appears to be a tambourine. His face is turned to the front so that he is looking at the viewer.

Behind the man's head, there are two lines curling in all directions. On each side, there are cups surmounted by rings or small circles that seems like a rose drawing.

A circular frame of gilded Naskh script surrounds the drawing. The text consists of Mamluk surnames. Outside the frame, there are remnants of ornamental foliage.
