The primrose pot is a classic shape of the purple clay pot. The lid, handle and spout are in the shape of trees, but the body of the pot is in the shape of a round altar, which just shows the beauty of the primrose pot. The spout of the spout stands proudly upward like a pine tree, representing the tenacious vitality and indomitable spirit of the pine tree, as well as the arrival of spring and the recovery of the earth.
Plum blossom stalks are used as streams, buttons and handles. The branches and scabs are well laid out, stretch naturally, and the old stems and the new ones compete with each other.
The flowers are either in bud or in full bloom, which is the true portrayal of the plum blossom a tree walks alone in the world in spring .
