Physical description

Six Kraak panels and their ribbon dividers cover both flange and well. They are filled wither with tassels, ribbons and bamboo cases or with an insect. Six sketchy blobs with links surround the central theme of a robed figure with a halo standing in front of a balustrade. The figure wears slippers and holds a dish in the left hand and some folded cloth in his right. Six lobed panels with flowers and comma dividers decorate the outside. There are four spur marks inside the base ring.
