The deep dish is ornamented with repeating stylized chrysanthemum flowers, alongside other designs. The object is typical of buncheong ware— characterized by white-slip decoration and produced on the peninsula from the late fourteenth through the midsixteenth century—with stamp-impressed designs.

Inscriptions indicate the court offices that commissioned the vessels. The dish was made in Gyeongju to be sent to the office of Jangheunggo, which supplied items like paper and mats to the court.
