A glazed and speckled porcelain offering dish for an altar. The base is a wide decorated cylinder which tapers sharply into a narrow top. The base supports a wide, shallow bowl.
This ritual dish was produced at a regional kiln. It is a low-quality object with a rough texture, made from the clay mixed with sand, contaminated with many impurities on the tray. Its glaze is dark with blue-green tints, giving the vessel the appearance of celadon. Its foot has an octagonal cross-section.
