Physical Description:

This cup is similar in appearance to a round pot, with its mouth curving inwards slightly. The glaze has been oxidized, producing brown tints. The outer rim is black inlaid with a fret-patterned band, below which is also inlaid in black with chrysanthemum spray designs in three places. Coarse sand is stuck on the entire foot and outer base. Glaze has owed down to the interior of the cup during ring and has severely peeled off from the mouth and the outer surface in parts, exposing the body.
