Trellis 1 occurs most often in patches on the vessel, rather than in a band format. It is characterized by the crossed lines that form one or more levels of diamond- or square-shaped lattice. A small X is painted at the intersection of each line. Most often seen on overglaze Chinese porcelain.
The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
