Physical description

The outer white rim is underlined by a double circle. A scroll of six lotuses and pairs of buds is neatly painted on the body amidst star leaves and smaller leaves. A ribbed band leads to a white band before the base ring. The well is plain beyond the brown rim. In the centre, inside a double line, an iris rises from a bunch of leaves, surrounded by smaller flower and knotted scrolls.
