The cup has three antique form legs featuring taotie-style animal mask showing crest, in-curving horns, complex-leaf-shaped ears, feline eyes and jaw-curls. Its fine high polish has left faintest pitting inside and out. The cup has relatively thin loop and wall with flat base, leaving it plain. 玉质白色,半透明,口沿内侧有褐色沁及绺裂,内外打磨光泽温润。仿汉代玉卮风格。卮呈圆筒形,直口,直腹,平底,环形把手,三个兽面铺首形足。卮体光素无纹。
