This wooden bowl resembles a loving cup in shape, but has a spout. The copper bowl of this shape is called a loving cup to this day in the Vologda Region. The bowl is painted with Permogorye patterns on a white background. Figures of women are included in the floral design doing round the bowl, while the traditional siren was replaced by a cockerrel. All elements harmoniously fuse to make up a bright and well-arranged ornament.
