Eastern Jin Dynasty

Brush pen washer-shaped mouth, thin neck, round belly, and flat bottom; There's a rooster head-shaped spout sticking out from one side of the shoulders, with a curved handle on the opposite side connecting the mouth and shoulders. There's a bridge-shaped knob on the other two sides. The pot is applied with lacquer-black glaze on the inside and the outside, but the bottom edge of the outer surface is left unglazed.

This intact pot is simple and elegant in style, and evenly glazed. It is a rare masterpiece.
