A tall glazed and speckled gray porcelain offering dish for an altar. The base is a wide, slightly tapered cylinder which widens at the top into a shallow dish. At the bottom of the base as well as a circle on the top of the dish there is some discoloration and morphing of the ceramic, most likely through use.
This vessel has a narrow tray and a high foot. It was stacked among other vessels during firing, leaving sand spur marks on its tray. It is a low-quality object with many specks of ash and pinholes on the dark surface.
