The classic Chinese brown-glazed tea bowl, made at the Jian kilns in Fujian province, was imitated by potters working at the various northern kilns that made Cizhou-type wares. They concealed the local white clay body with brown slip to resemble the dark brown Jian-ware body. This bowl is a copy, in turn, of the nothern Jin dynasty (11151234) bowl, but its maker shaped a more conical form and cut the foot rim with an everted shape not found in the original.
