It measures 14.8cm (5 3/4") long, 11.3cm (4 3/8") wide and 10.8cm (4 1/4") high.
Condition is excellent with no damage or restoration. Minimal surface wear, just a little to the gilding on the inside rim of the bowl just at the 4 points of the flutes where the lid fits. There is a section of firing pits to the glaze inside the base of the bowl.
