A rhombic shaped bowl with six corners slightly extravagant, curved and deep wall, the perimeter wall conforms to the rhombic mouth, showing the changes of convex and concave edges. The fetal mass is firm and thin, with short ring feet. It is fired by cushion firing method, and green glaze is applied inside and outside. The glaze color is light and grayish, and the glaze is opaque. Light gray edges appear along the thin glaze at the mouth. The center of the outsole bulges a little, and there is no glaze at the foot ring landing place, revealing a light gray body, and the foot wall has multiple glaze traces. By comparing the gold and silver wares unearthed in the pits of Pingqiao, Liyang, Jiangsu Province, Xixie Village, Yaotang, Jintan, and Pengzhou, Sichuan Province, we can trace back to the prototype of the imitation. In contrast, similar shapes were unearthed at Xiaomei Kiln in Xikou, Longquan City, Zhejiang Province, and Laohudong Kiln in Hangzhou City, which shows that different kilns are in common pursuit of the fashion of gold and silver.
