This vessel has a straight rim, a stout neck and a large body. It is hexagonal from the neck, to body, and foot. The ridges on the plump body are obvious, dividing the body into six decorative parts. The body is embellished with the Chinese character, 寿 (literally longevity), in a round shape. The lower part of the neck, shoulders and the part close to the foot are embellished with modified banana leaves, arc motifs, upturned lotuses and vines. These decorations are different but obeys to a pattern, a contrast to the rich decorations on the neck. These patterns, despite their abstraction, are quite specific and therefore bear rich connotations. The ridges on the body gradually become curved, adding some changes to the contour.
