According to Fröhlich, there was a painted wall surface with an arched niche on a white ground.
The inside of the niche was moderately to severely faded, especially on the side walls and the bottom of the rear panel.
On the back wall of the niche, on the right, stands Vesta in long purple robe, crowned, sacrificing on a round altar to her right.
On the right side panel a devoted donkey is facing the goddess.
Left of the altar is Vulcan, wearing a yellow robe, his right hand outstretched to the altar holding a pair of tongs and in the left a hammer. 
On his head, the God wore a felt hat. 
A green pine tree behind the altar occupies the centre of the image. 
The background of the rear wall and the side walls and the ceiling is decorated with rough, red and green flowers.

The paintings outside the niche were destroyed.
Outside the niche were once left and right the flanking Lares in green tunics and blue cloaks, with Rhyton with Patera. 
Below the niche was painted a ham, a pig's head and a meat skewer and a snake creeping to the right.

On the back wall of the niche, is Vesta sacrificing on a round altar to her right.
On the right side panel, a devoted donkey that turned the millstones has been given a place facing the goddess.
According to Bragantini, these paintings were very popular but of a low quality and were frequently renovated.
