A 19th century covered bowl with similar decoration on both parts. It includes a band of large lotus-petal medallions with a vertical stem of flowers (blue) and leaves with yellow buds, which is a pattern from the Himaphan forest; a green band of smaller lotus petals around the mouth with a narrow band of geometrics on a white background around the mouth rim; a solid green band around the foot and the top of the cover.
