Celadon bowls like this one are extremely rare. Lotus vine patterns are embossed inside, while peony flower patterns are inlaid into the outer surface. It is the only example of this kind that exists. It is a silver-rimmed celadon bowl that blends the features of pure celadon and celadon with inlaid patterns that were made at a time when inlaying techniques were used on only a single side.
