Following the system used on Chinese vessels the horses facing different directions are placed in alternation around the bowl. Small tassels hang from the center of each panel, but otherwise the middle zone of the exterior is free of decoration. Overlapping petals are found just above the foot. The internal decoration consists of a floral spray in the foot and eight half-medallions on the rim separated by eight tassels hanging from the rim. <br /><br />
