The heavily potted bowl is loosely carved in the well with two flowers on foliate meanders, above a molded leafy, floral spray in the center. The exterior is carved with floral scrolls beneath a band of key fret below the rim. The bowl is covered overall with a sea-green glaze, except for an unglazed circle on the base which is burnt orange in the firing.
