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 />

Sand is stuck to the foot and the outer base. The bowl is tinged with vivid yellow. Parts of the rim are slightly damaged, but the glaze is finely fused.<br />
