About

Briefly the archaic script is of type called 'Large Seal Script' popular in the period of the Spring and Autumn Annals (772-481 BCE). According to the inscription it appeared on the inside rim of 'yi' vessel. The translation, very roughly is 'Tian Zhi Zhia [Tian Jijia], copied on a winter day, breathing on the frozen tip of the brush to warm it'.

Dr. Mae Anna Pang in 'Late Chinese Imperial Porcelain', AGNSW, 1980.
