Physical description

Six Kraak panels with dividers on the shoulder have been painted inwards in three blues, with reserve-painted cranes amidst clouds. Four separate scenes fill the body space: three deer on a mound, a flower spray, a lion together with a brocaded ball with ribbons and a free composition. Two bands of panels, one with leaves, the other with plantain leaves, lead to the base which is filled with crawling glaze.
