A big, deep and round bowl with a straight edge and small foot made of white porcelain, coated with a pale indigo glaze. At the centre, inside, there is a sophisticated medallion with lotus leaves and flowers spouting water. On the outside, one may see a course of four big lotus petals and a flowering branch wrapped in a vine leaf wreath, alternated with pairs of smaller and simpler similar motifs. Small branches of lotus (brown, red and golden) may be seen in the intersections of the petals.
