The shape of the cup and copper mount on the rim are unusual for the period. It is rare to find the name of a city gate and the name of a famous pavilion marked on the porcelain pieces in that period. One mark of “Zhang Jiang Gate” was the main city gate of Nanchang, the current capital city of Jiangxi Province. The pavilion “Teng Wang Ge” (The King Tengs Pavilion), built over 1300 years ago in Tang Dynasty, was the most famous pavilion on the Yangtze River.
