The main body divided into segments of alternating black and turquoise background, then covered with pink, pale blue, yellow and red five-petalled flowers in a random pattern. The handle and spout in a royal blue ground with red spots, most of which have disappeared. The cloisonné is outlined with a rope-design wire. The finial of the lid is fashioned into the shape of a large open lotus.
