A molding navel was in the center of the foot ring when darken brownish tint was revealed at the body clay.
Glaze crackles and obvious incursions were happened to the glaze.

The cup was finely shaped and was well glazed as those documentary counterparts. But some firing defects were happened in the cavetto. They were caused by falling ashes of the firing wood.
