The lotus-form shallow body raised on a short ring foot, the barbed flared rim enclosing a cavetto carved with a central lotus blossom within key-fret banding, covered allover in a lustrous blue-green glaze pooling to a deeper shade in the recesses, the base with an unglazed ring, burnt-orange in the firing. The lotus figure has been used in ancient China to imply the female form. Use your imagination. Some glaze imperfections.
