Open, the wall is inclined high, the ring foot is shallow and small, and the bottom center is slightly raised. Except for the bottom foot, the whole vessel is covered with blue glaze, and the surface is covered with light brown and white open patterns. The thin glaze around the mouth shows gray and white color, and the thick glaze around the outer mouth and the center of the utensil shows lake green. The fetal bone is firm and thin, and the sole of the foot is smeared with brown fetal protection juice. Gray and white fetuses are exposed in the distance. The bowl shape is a typical tea cup for ordering tea in the Song Dynasty. The caliber and foot diameter of such tea cups vary greatly, so the center of gravity is not very stable. Therefore, tea saucers must be configured, which may be one of the main reasons why tea cups in the Song Dynasty are often placed on saucers.
