The bowl is finely potted with deep rounded sides rising from a short straight foot to a slightly everted rim. The exterior is incised with four stylised flower heads divided by ruyi clouds, all above a lappet band. The interior is similarly incised with a flower head inside a medallion at the centre. The bowl is overall applied with an egg-yolk yellow glaze. The recessed base is inscribed with a six-character Qianlong seal mark.
