Jue vessel with inscription
This cup is modelled in the form of an ancient bronze ritual vessel made for heating wine called a jue. On the side it has a relief inscription which reads 龍泉縣 儒學祭器 (Longquan xian ruxue ji qi ‘ Longquan county, sacrificial vessel for Confucian studies’). On the other side is an apocryphal inscription 弘治四年三月立(Hongzhi si nian san yue li ‘Set up on the third month of the fourth year of Hongzhi' [AD 1491]). This cup was probably made at Longquan but in the Republican era.
