There is a thumbed band around the bowl base and the inside of the foot is unglazed.

It is painted in blue on an off-white glaze with a pinkish tinge. Outside there are six blue panels each reserving a rounded oval containing a bunch of three round fruits with leaves surrounded by quadruple dots and multi-point stars.Between the panels and around the pedestal there are ruyi scrolls and a stiff leaf border on the foot. Inside there is a silhouette of a man carrying a long branch (?) within three circles; a row of alternating circles and quadruple dots on the sides and is inscribed below the central design: ' S // I E // 1711'. The cover is painted with an all-over design of flowers, fruits and birds amid quadruple dots and multi-point stars. Stuck inside the cover there is a printed extract from a sale catalogue:' 329 Large Brislington Delft Vase, Twisted Handles, and a Cup on the Cover, inscribed S // J E //1711 A very curious Example.'
