    The dish has low rounded sides with a flared rim and three bulging stylized animal legs resting on ‘paws’. The inside is impressed with a large rosette with a central roundel containing a wild goose in flight among three cloud motifs, surrounded by spiralling lotus flowers and cloud motifs. The design is covered in green, yellow, cobalt-blue and transparent glazes, the rest of the dish has a transparent glaze, which is largely degraded through burial, and the underside was left in the biscuit.
