: Flat tripod with studded rim and feet shaped like ruyi clouds. Jun ware, made of grey stoneware shaped by moulding with a skyblue glaze on the inside and a violet glaze on the inside. The base is inscribed with the Chinese character for the number 4, which was incised before the firing. It has been suggested that such incised numbers refer to sizes, which would help to match flower pots and stands.
