Brush pen washer-shaped mouth, narrow neck, sloping shoulders, bulgy belly, gradually tapering off from the belly down, flat bottom, two symmetrical vertical ears at the shoulders. The outside and the inside of the pot are applied with celadon glaze, but the lower part of the outside is left unglazed. The neck and the shoulders are engraved with water wave patterns, and the belly is engraved with closely arranged string patterns.
