The outer wall of the vessel is decorated with three layers of string patterns, three for each layer. The whole body is covered with powder green glaze, the glaze is thick and moist. The vertical flow of glaze juice makes the ridge of string pattern appear slightly dark brown, and the thin glaze along the edge of mouth appears slightly reddish brown.
