The jar has a wide, circular mouth, and a short cylindrical neck, which rises from the center of the jar’s inverted tulip-shaped body. The smooth white porcelain is embellished all over with linear designs painted in blue. The wide shoulders and tapering body of the jar feature repeated rows of circles, and within each circle is a symmetrical maze- like design. Geometric patterns also line the ridge of the opening and the base of the neck, in between which are small, stylized flowing clouds. Short, upward pointing shapes ring the base as well.
