這件龍泉窯茶碗為鉢形,外壁雕有重疊的蓮花瓣,帶老銀扣,通體施以粉青釉。

這只碗是 1916 大都會博物館東方陶瓷部創始收藏的一部分。在 1916 年的開館圖錄中可以看到這件附帶銀扣且精美傳世茶碗,這很有可能是岡倉天心在 20 世紀初在中國期間購買的,岡倉天心是波士頓美術館中國藝術品部的負責人,這件作品可能曾是紫禁城皇家收藏的一部分。

這只茶碗與眾不同,碗口寬大,呈球狀。它是現存同類蓮瓣鉢唯一一隻內壁帶有束口,碗內中心帶有茶溜設計的茶碗。碗內的釉面具有潑灑的流動效果,這跟南宋官窯器物內壁的釉質接近。

The bowl is potted with deep, rounded sides, carved on the exterior with overlapping petals rising from the foot, and is covered allover with a glaze of pale sea-green tone beneath the metal-bound rim.

This bowl is part of the group of Chinese Art that forms the foundation of Metropolitan Museum Oriental Collection started in 1916. The original silver banding is present in the inaugural catalogue dated 1916, it is highly probable that this was purchased in relation to Tenshin who acted as agent for Chinese Art accession during his time in China in the early 1900s, could be part of the imperial collection of the Forbidden City.

The present bowl is unusual as it is made wide and globular in volume. It is the only surviving example with an inner rim and an inner circle inside the bowl for tea residue, signifying its purpose as a tea bowl. The inner glaze has a splash on effect, with mobility of glaze clearly visible, the outside is covered thickly with translucent green glaze throughout.
