Description
On an iron-rich body, primary patterns of cords are tucked into four corners, and over them dark blue circles are painted. A big bird rests on a branch of one aged tree. The trunk is violet and leaves in green and yellow are off to the sides. The partially visible sky and white clouds improve the coloring effect. Around them are the same as the yellow arabesque patterns which are used on the back of "Shallow bowl in Aote type of Old-Kutani", while the green patterns, different from the brim red of "Shallow bowl in the Aote type of Old-Kutani", remain in the white groundwork.
