This white porcelain cup is made in the shape of a horn and features a grass design about one-third of the way from the tip. It is coated with a thick grayish-white glaze exhibiting a slight yellow tint. Only a small number of these horn cups were made after the Three Kingdoms period, and a white porcelain horn cup is particularly rare.
