- Characteristic decoration from Multan, Northern India / present day Pakistan, the type of bold decoration that influenced designers in the Aesthetic and Arts & Crafts Movement like William De Morgan.
- Careful and complex hand decorated with a striking turquoise blue foliate pattern and surrounded with a continuous arched / architectural design pattern as decoration to the edge or rim (reminiscent of Mughal, Jharokha arches in Northern India / Pakistan)
- In solid antique condition with not cracks.  The rim to this earthenware piece akin to Dutch and English Delft pottery has some glaze losses / nibbles, either caused by a plate hanger or a life of utility.  These do not affect the decorative nature or utility of the piece and have been recoloured by a previous owner as shown in the images of the edge / rim
