Description

masterfully potted with deep rounded sides gracefully rising from a tapered foot to a gently everted rim, superbly painted in characteristic soft tones of cobalt-blue washes outlined with a darker blue border, the rounded sides of the interior superbly and freely decorated with a continuous undulating scroll forming a rounded lozenge and bearing four day lilies, each with five delicate petals tapering to the tip, two blooms further rendered realistically with prominent upright stamens consisting of filaments surmounted by pollen-bearing anthers, alternating with the other two blooms, the elegant design further punctuated with curling slender blade-like leaves issuing from the meandering scroll, all below a double-line border and encircling a central double-line medallion enclosing a floral bloom with overlapping petals, the frieze on the cavetto echoed on the exterior between two double-line borders, the foot skirted with a further double-line band, all thinly veiled overall save for the unglazed footring with a most exquisite unctuous glaze, the base inscribed with a six-character reign mark within a double circle
