Currently not on display

A wide shallow Chinese bowl or cup, the interior glaze has the appearance of a creamy stoneware, the exterior has been covered with a cinnabar red lacquer that has a pressed pattern of repeating swastikas, punctuated by roundels containing the good luck symbol 'shou', which appear to have once been gilded. The base and lip both have borders of key motifs.
