This is a yellowish gray, low-fired earthenware cup with a handle. The mouth is upright, while the rest of the body has a swollen belly and a round base. The handle attached to the lower middle section of the body is not functional. Traces of rotation and water smoothing are visible on the inner and outer surfaces of the mouth.

2004/1.190
<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.
