Description

shaped as a flattened double gourd surmounting a simulated stand, the vessel cleverly angled to enhance the illusion of depth, decorated on the body with lotus blooms borne on meandering scrolls and flying bats, the central medallions enclosing the characters da and ji (great auspiciousness) in red and reserved on a trellis-diaper ground, a key fret border at the waist and on the stand, a T-form aperture on the back for hanging
