In POMPEII, it’s life and art, by AUGUST MAU, pages 388-392 – he states “at “c” there is a cistern curb (kerb?), with a large earthen vessel for holding water on either side, while the wall above was ornamented with a painting representing Vesta, the patron goddess of bakers, between the 2 Lares”. 
In WANDEGEMALDE der vom Verschutteten stadte, by WOLFGANG HELBIG he states that there is “In the pistrinum:  Indistinct Sacred painting, 85“

VI.3.3 Pompeii. December 2007. Site of the household altar.

Mau stated “at “c” there is a cistern curb, with a large earthen(ware) vessel for holding water on either side, while the wall above was ornamented with a painting representing Vesta, the patron goddess of bakers, between the two Lares”.

See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p. 388-92).

VI.3.3 Pompeii. Old sketch of lararium painting.
In the middle of the lararium is a painted round altar.
To the left of the altar is the goddess Fornax (as identified by Mazois) in a long robe. 
Fornax was the goddess of bread and baking. On the left of the goddess is Lar. 
In the right half, which is obscured by the mill, was possibly Vesta with another Lar on the outside. 
In the lower zone are two serpents approaching a round altar, one from each side.
