The unadorned interior of the shallow offering dish surrounded by an everted edge with a rinceau along the exterior, the wide sloping foot decorated with an intricate tableau of a writhing five-clawed dragon vying for a flaming pearl amid stylized tufts of smoke and clouds above a churning sea with a leaping carp and three lithe sprigs of water plants, the glazed interior with horizontal six-character mark in seal-script.
