The circular shallow bowl is fitted with its original silvered copper lining, and rests upon a raised foot ring. The exterior is decorated with two rows of pommel scrolls above a wide classic scroll band – the dark brown top layer lightened by two layers of red lacquer showing through the smooth and rounded carved design.
