This large porcelain bowl with a broad, flat rim prominently features the Chinese characters for good fortune (福; Korean: bok) and longevity (壽; Korean: su). Two of each character grace the bowl’s interior sides, on perpendicular axes, with an additional “福” in the center. The same two characters also appear on the bowl’s exterior.
