A shallow plate with low, angular sides, the everted rim is edged with eight cursory bracket foliations. The shiny, bright blue glaze, which is pitted in some areas, shows light crazing; it covers the entire piece with the exception of the foot. This glaze is particularly uneven on the outside of the plate; while it is very thin in some places, there is a thick welt in areas near the foot. The foot is fairly high, cut flat, and unglazed, revealing a fine body that is burned buff.
