Why this is a
Masterpiece

Not until the late Spring and Autumn Period and the early Warring States Period (5th Century BCE) did glassware appear in China. These glass beads and the glass tube is the earliest glassware discovered in China. They are decorated with eyes of dragonfly design, spiral design, rhombus-shaped design and others. Very delicate and exquisite with bright colors, they fully demonstrate the outstanding and mature techniques of making glassware at that time. They are of high artistic value and have also a high value for scientific research.
