The decoration engraved on the bowl depicts the mythological scene presenting Orpheus sitting under a tree and playing the lyre, surrounded by animals. On the other side the inscription, “Orpheus playing assumedly with a tree and animals”, with spelling mistakes, which allows for attributing this exhibit to Saxon engravers from the Hein family working at that time in the Radziwiłł glassworks in Naliboki.

It was probably the graphics in the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries by the German engraver Antonio Tempesta that served as a pattern for this image. The collection of the Museum in Tarnów also includes another cup — an almost identical one which bears the same depiction. It is an extremely rare case, not only in Polish museums.
