This white porcelain bottle is crudely shaped. It has a short neck and its surface is entirely covered in fine and evenly-spread crackles. Crackles are contaminated with many impurities, darkening the tone of the surface. Pale green transparent glaze was applied on the entire vessel including the foot which retains 12 refractory spur marks. The rim was slightly damaged before the application of glaze. The large number of pinholes on the lower part of the body and the sand stuck to the parts of the bottom suggest that this bottle was produced in a regional kiln.
