The mouldings on the tea stand are complex and well executed. A water-stopping bead on the top edge makes practical sense for a tea stand. The latticework on the base is in an intricate geometric design to provide strength.

There are cloud and peach blossom motifs on the apron. The former symbolizes good fortune and the latter symbolizes longevity.
