Description

The deep U-shaped bowl is rising from a knopped spreading foot to an everted rim. The stem cup is the type of unadorned, functional bronze vessel that belongs to a group that includes bottles, cups and bowls, which appear to have been used mostly by Buddhist monks in rituals. Several such cups were included in the 1999 exhibition Tin-Bronze of China at the Kuboso Memorial Museum of Art in Izumi.
