Small bowl with everted rim on raised everted foot.
Clay: light grey, gritty.
Glaze: clear glaze on interior, over white slip; rim unglazed; mottled copper-green glaze on exterior, pooling around foot; visible edge of foot has brownish sheen; base unglazed.
Decoration: incised under glaze on outside, three sets of multiple lines evenly spaced on body.
Produced by copper, the fresh green color of the glaze on this cup is a distinctive feature of some northern Vietnamese ceramics. This bright color differs from the soft green of celadon glaze, which is tinted by a small percentage of iron.
