Further information

The bowl with a very low foot ring is divided into six divisions by faintly raised lines on the interior. A moulded decoration of flowers in baskets is represented in each of the divisions. The bluish white 'qingbai' glaze covers the entire body except the mouth rim. This is a typical product of the Jingdezhen kilns.
