delicately potted with thin rounded sides rising from a straight foot, the exterior deftly enameled in rich, vibrant, opaque hues with a florid continuous lotus pond landscape, the lotus blooms of yellow, blue, pink and white with the tips of the petals saturated in colour, the single flower heads interspersed with three rare double lotuses, the heads all supported on slender studded stalks gently swaying in the breeze, the vivid colours complemented by the emerald-green lotus pads, their dense network of veins radiating out from the blue-shaded centre towards the furled edges depicted in various stages of aging, some with only yellow and pink on the edges while others with brown withered sections surround insect-eaten holes,  the stalks interwoven with thin blades of blue water reeds, all reserved against a luxurious raspberry-red ground, the interior and base left white, the base further enameled with a six-character blue Kangxi yuzhi  mark
