<br />
This is a blue-gray, long-necked, high-fired stoneware jar. The horizontal ridge on the upper part of the long vessel neck marks the boundary between the neck and its inwardly curved mouth. The mouth slopes inward and has a sharp edge. The neck is divided into four sections by three horizontal ridges spaced at equal intervals, and each section is decorated by a wave design rendered with a comb with approximately ten teeth. The jar is widest at its upper-middle part, and the base is round with a slightly recessed center.<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.

<br />
This yellowish brown, bowl-shaped, low-fired earthenware vessel is made from fine clay mixed with fine sand particles. It has no neck. 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 />

<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 />

The celadon cup has a mildly inverted rim with curved sides that are bent once, at a sharp angle, near the base. The surface is coated with a greenish blue glaze. The slightly inward-turning mouth facilitates drinking while the sides curve gently toward the base.
