This red earthenware four-story pavilion is surrounded by a courtyard wall with a hipped roof covered gateway. Each story is similar in construction but graduated in size with the smallest story on top. These small, single-bay rooms feature a door entrance below a lattice window. Waving figures can be seen in the doorways. The overhanging roof eaves supported by a triple bracket set display roof ridges imitating tile work and provide the base for the next storey’s roof balcony. The entire structure is covered in a green lead glaze with iridescence and calcification.

The slender silhouette of the vessel suggests a date towards the end of the Late Shang period. The body is decorated with Tao-tie mask design, divided by the elaborate raised flanges. An inscription is found inside the flaring foot, presumably the name of the person that the vessel is dedicated or the clan emblem.
