The upper register, below the flaring rim, is engraved with the Eight sacred Buddhist Symbols and the lower register with lotus flowers alternating with offering bowls. The cup sits on a high pedestal base consisting of a scrolling lotus and SHOU medallion bead above an elongated lotus petal base with two rows of lotus petals above a plain cone foot finished with a stylized vegetable design at the bottom. The plain lid has three coin cut-outs and is fitted with a small silver hat shield which is attached to the open center rim hole and has thin silver tube for the wick.
