This finely potted vessel has an off-white porcelain body covered with a transparent glaze, giving an overall warm white color. A lattice of foliage patterns is combed and incised in the clay; the bold, uninhibited decoration interacts with the compact ceramic form and the subtle glazing to give it a special aesthetic appeal.
