The decoration to the body incorporates the engraved inscription 'Presented to Miss M. J. Williams, Headmistress of Graig-Bedlinog School, on the occasion of her retrement on 31st March 1945, by the public of Bedlinog, Glam'.


The upper rim of this impressive CES bowl is encircled with an exceptional pierced cloud decorated border, accented with further undulating dragon designs flanking shaped vacant cartouches.


The circular spreading foot is embellished with impressive applied plum blossom sprays, accented with a plain applied moulded border paralleling the incurved shaped rim.
