Porcelain, thrown and glazed except for 1 cm above the base, the rim, and .5 cm below it on the inside. Circular with deep curved sides, standing on a narrow base. The glaze on the exterior may be litium based and appears blue on one side, and yellowish-green on the other side with brown speckles of different sizes, some close together and other more widely spaced (resembling a bird's egg).
