The body of the tankard is decorated with two narrow bands of gilded abstract vegetal ornament around the neck and base, separated by a wider band that features three repoussé medallions alternating with three bosses. Each medallion depicts a standing nude female: one of the nudes appears in an interior holding a dagger to her chest; another holds a sword and a man's head and stands beside a female companion; the third holds an elongated arrow with a blindfolded cupid at her feet. The cast handle consists of a clawed bird's foot grasping a ball at the base, followed by a satyr mask, a bound female nude, and, surmounting the handle, the bust of a warrior. The lid, a later addition, bears a wreath with a series of initials and the date 1639.

The mouth is slightly everted while the rim is generally flat and features some grooves. The body is widest towards the upper-middle section, and the flat base is rounded where it joins the body. Parts of the vessel feature a paddled pattern which suggests that the surface was first paddled and then smoothed with water on a rotary device.<br />

<br />
This is a set consisting of a dark gray, high-fired stoneware bowl and its lid. The lid is crowned with a button-shaped knob at its center, which is encircled by two thinly incised lines drawn by a multitooth comb. These lines divide the lid&rsquo;s surface into inner and outer sections, to both of which wave designs have been applied. On each side of the bowl, a long, narrow, band-shaped handle is attached vertically and symmetrically. The base of the bowl is flat, while the part where the base and body of the bowl meet is rounded. The bowl gradually flares upwards. Three broad raised bands surround three parts of the body. A wave design is rendered between each band. Faint traces of paddled patterns are visible on parts of the base.

<p>This celadon bowl is undecorated. The glaze is poorly fused and is generally opaque. The foot is low and displays traces of sand supports. The sand, stuck to the foot and the outer base, suggests that the bowl was placed on the kiln floor during ring. Glaze had run down to the outer wall of the foot and accumulated, in parts.<br />

<p>The cup has a mouth that curves slightly inwards; this is a form typical of round cups with saucers produced in large numbers in the 13th and 14th centuries. The cup is decorated only on the outer rim with a fret-patterned band. Repaired damage is visible on several parts on the mouth, as well as cracking that occurred during ring. Glaze has been applied down to the foot, and three quartzite spur marks remain on the outer base. The partially oxidized body displays darker patches on the surface, but it preserves a bright celadon color overall.<br />
