The plate depicts two breams with the typical three stripes marking the gills. The stomach is outlined in white, the fin ends marked in white, too. The third fish, a torpedo, is also framed in white with black eyes framed in white and thick black dots on the back. The cup in the centre of the plate is undecorated. On the outside of the rim black tongues. The foot ring is clearly set off. See for the present type: Christian Zindel “Meeresleben und Jenseitsfahrt.
