The six petal flower mouth is shaped with a wide mouth, an arc deep wall, a round bottom, and a short circle foot. The inner sole is slightly convex, and the outer sole has glaze marks. It is fired by cushion firing method. The inside and outside are covered with blue glaze. The green glaze is thick and moist, showing pink green color. The body is thin. There are multiple layers of glaze marks under the mouth. There are golden yellow and transparent patterns on the inner and outer walls. The foot tip shows black gray color. The two works (hence porcelain 018034 and hence porcelain 018035) were both collected by the Qianlong Emperor in the Duobao grid. Through the passing down of the celadon bowl with the “Qianlong year system of the Qing Dynasty”, we can trace the process of porcelain imitation firing in the Duobao grid in the Qianlong official kiln from the similar shape. In contrast, the imitations are quite different from the original in terms of the body glaze and the details of the feet.
