This vessel is referred to as an ‘ear’ cup because of the slightly protruding handles that resemble ears on a head. The interior of the cup is partially glazed with a green color. The exterior is unglazed, with a few spots of green glazing. The sides of the cup are pinched to form the place where a thumb and a finger can hold the cup.
