A bright white porcelain base, bordered by a band of subtle orange floral etchings, highlights panels of hand painted floral design of bold orange and dramatic blue. Six panels bordered by linear bands of a diamond and cross pattern enclose ornate floral vases set upon three legged pedestals. A medallion joins the bands which mathematically line up perfectly with the wider panels of the exterior.
If one also lines up the interior and exterior panels they would see how the artist cleverly reversed the colors of the blossoms. Very smart. Very beautiful.
