This dish is decorated with stamped design of rows of dots on the inner wall; white inlaid with chrysanthemums on the inner bottom; and in between them are stamped lotus petals. Its outer wall is brushed with white slip. The foot retains evenly spread traces of fine grains of sand. The glaze is well fused, producing a shiny surface, pale blue in colour and transparent.
