The underglazed bulbous body, decorated with hand-painting in variegate tones and shades cobalt blue underglaze, depicted figurines traverse in their path within landscape. Auspicious geometrical pattern and floral motifs banded to the neck under the rim. Initiated conjugated marks between upper and lower parts of the vase during the kiln process can be seen from uneven surface below the shoulder. A characteristic ‘heaped and piled effect’, the underglaze cobalt blue concentrates in certain areas, bubbling through the surface of the glaze and turning a deep blue-black. This inadvertently gave texture, energy and shading to the design.
