Song moulded porcelainious open conical bowl. Excellent pale ash glaze over a moulded pattern of boys, lotus flowers and over ripe pomegranits.

All the decoration are metaphors for large healthy famalies of male children.

Excellent colour and form with the pale glaze falling short of the foot rim in some areas.

Cleared off rim where there may have been a low grade metal rim which would have helped keep the shape in firing, or to fire in the kiln upside down on the rim
