The bowl is finely potted with deep rounded sides rising from a straight foot to a flaring rim. The bowl is delicately enameled in pink, yellow, blue, red, green, rose and gold. Carved meander rings on foot ring and upper ring.
It is decorated with golden Quails (鵪鶉) perched on rocks, grasshoppers, beside blossoming chrysanthemum flowers. Quails are believed to mate for life and so signify marital loyalty. Grasshoppers (蚱蜢) as a Chinese symbol, the grass hopper offers attributes of longevity, happiness, good health, good luck and wealth.
