Jade green urn that looks like a round teapot without the handle or spout. Large lotus flowers are carved on outside of the urn. Petal details and delicate veining are depicted in a darker green. The lid is pointed at the very top, and has a rim that fans out at the bottom creating a ledge running around the circumference of the top of the jar. The urn itself is set securely on a base of three bun-like 'feet', made of the same material as the urn, spaced in a triangle formation around the bottom of the urn.
