Fold edge, ear, There is a beam connection between the edge and the ear, with a round bottom and hoofed feet. The lower part of the mouth is decorated with stealing curved patterns and a convex string pattern, and triangular reinforcing ribs can be seen at the outsole. In the late Western Zhou Dynasty, the tripod shaped utensils gradually changed significantly. The shape developed towards the form of ear appendages, with a shallow abdomen and hoof shaped feet. The decoration content tended to be simplified, usually with abstract lines such as stealing curved patterns and double ring patterns. The number of inscriptions on the utensils became more. The inner wall of the device is inscribed with 14 characters and one character in duplicate. The content is: “Uncle is a treasure tripod, and his descendants will use it forever.”
