Delicately hand painted with birds flowers plants and fans. By the looks of things this pot has been made by the coil method and not molded. The colour is more a pale blue grey than white. The paper stickers under the base are yellowed and brown and there are the remains of what looks like sealing wax on the bottom as well. If you love oriental porcelain I highly recommend this piece. No Chips or Cracks. I havent tried to wash this pot as I dont want to do any damage. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions.
