The present hexagonal vessel is inset with finely carved openwork panels depicting lotus scrolls enclosing a shou character. The base is decorated in the champlevé enamel technique. The detachable cover features seven apertures to hold flower stems.

In our opinion, the subject matter, material and workmanship indicate an eighteenth century date for this work of art.
