The rim is decorated with a blue ground inset with Peony flowers and painted with gilt scrolls inset with three reserves. One containing a Shishi, Chinese Lion, and Peonies, and the others containing, Nightingales and Apricot blossom, and Butterflies amongst Lotus form Flowers.
The reverse decorated with floral sprigs.
