With a round body and a slightly converging rim, a curved wall, a shallow belly and a flat bottom, the cup has a square spout attached to the opening rim; the spout is formed with a sturdy and elegant contour, protruding out on one side of the body; a half-ring handle is attached below the spout resembling human’s ear. It is fully applied with sky blue glaze; three spur marks are visible at the bottom and wrapped around by thick glaze; and as the glaze is dripping along the handle, so the congealed glaze flow touches the ground and can also enhance the stability of the cup.
