The roundels are set within a white raised slip border and are titled VICTORIA R.I. Further trailing raised white slip patterning is applied around the body of the beaker with a relief molded garland of flowers representing the United Kingdom applied around the top rim. The portraits are decorated in green glazes and set against a blue ground with white outlines with a brown glazed top edge. The beaker has an impressed Doulton Lambeth mark to the base along with artist marks for Eleanor Tosen and Elizabeth Atkins with a further unidentified assistant mark. The beaker is numbered 7338.
