It is shaped like a bronze pot. It has a long neck with a mouth folded and lips curled. Both sides of the neck are decorated with ears. The abdomen is plump, and the bottom is connected with a high circle foot. There are five strings between the neck and abdomen, two through the ears, and two on the foot wall. The fetal bone is thick and heavy, with celadon glaze applied on it. The glaze color is light, and there is no glaze on the foot margin. The exposed part of the fetal bone is coated with ochre fetal juice. The bottom is engraved with Emperor Qianlong’s “Two Eared Bottle for Chanting the Official Kiln”: “Inside the secret color pottery building, Shen Shen is angry and gloomy. There is no way to walk on the shin, but there is no way to listen to the ears. The Buddhist is calm, and the immortals are green. Carry the flowers to step on the street, and gradually pick up the fragrance”, a royal poem. At the end of the poem, the chronicle of the reign of Emperor Qianlong in the mid spring of the first day of the reign of the Emperor Qianlong (the 39th year of the reign of the Emperor Qianlong: 1774) was signed, and two seals, namely, “the heart of understanding is not far away” and “the symbol of virtue is sufficient”, were affixed. Taipei and the Forbidden City in Beijing also have similar objects in shape, but no poems are carved at the bottom.
