Why this is a
Masterpiece

Bowls for ancestor ceremonies are common, but these two pieces provide some idea of how ancient people wanted to make vessels for special purposes. They are believed to have been used for offering wine for ancestors. A wine cup on a pedestaled dish is common for an ancestor ceremony, however small and big bowls together in one piece are very rare.

History of the Object
These white porcelain wine cups are evenly coated by yellowish glaze. They must have been made as a pair. Both sides of the mouth rim are pressed in order to let a person drink wine conveniently.
