此碗為唐代茶器,造型來自金銀器。唐代的茶比宋代茶更為濃稠,飲茶者單手持這類淺碗,較稠密的茶湯隨之滑入口中。著名的「宮樂圖」便描繪了這種場景。

圈足內修胎特殊,呈優雅的弧形拱起,與外側的弧線相呼應,這是對銀器的一種致敬。圈足底的作法明顯少於同時期的玉璧底,這類作品在大明宮遺址中有發現。

The based is elegantly shaped with a curve, tapering outwards connecting the curve of the sides, a tribute to the silverwares. The rim shaped base is significantly less than Bi-shape base, with similar examples found only in the imperial palace ‘Da Ming Gong’.
