This round, shallow bowl is covered with a light tan glaze. The glaze has patches that are slightly lighter and darker shades of tan, and its texture is crazed (crackled). In the center of the bowl is a large, shiny, dark blue floral shape with ten asymmetric “petals.” Five oblong spots of the same blue color are evenly spaced around the curved rim of the bowl.
