This plate has a flared mouth rim, arced walls, and a round foot. The interior and exterior are covered in a white glaze. The area of the exterior wall near the foot and the underside are unglazed. The clay material used is rather coarse, and the foot has a severe degree of sand adhesion. The interior is painted with designs in red and green. The rim is painted with a single red line with green and black geometric designs below. The interior walls have panels with a red and green embellished-ground and four reserved panels with foliated floral designs. Five red circles surround red and green floral designs at the center of the interior.

The plate was donated to the Palace Museum by Han Wai Toon (Han Huaizhun, 1892–1970).
