Zhou Dynasty (1050-221 BCE) Warring States cup. This small cup, made of gray low fired stoneware, was hand built. It was impressed on the outside with a cloth pattern, the weave showing plainly on the outside. The foot is somewhat crude, simply a flattened ring around the bottom and a rough concave surface. It is in excellent condition with a few tiny chips on the lip. It is a rare and fine item from the John Young collection.
Age: Warring States 4th-5th Century BCE
Size: 2.5 inches high, 3.5 inch diam
