Physical Description:

This oil bottle is decorated with inlaid white lines on the shoulder and four inlaid chrysanthemums on the body. It has the refractory spurs stuck on the foot and outer base, and the glaze is partially crawled around the foot. The foot is low and there are three quartzite spur marks. The glaze and the form of the bottle are good overall, despite partial damage.
