Cocoon shaped shadow cloud pattern device
In the Han Dynasty, clay was used as the base, and the types, forms, methods, patterns and firing temperatures of the wares fired in the kilns were different. At the beginning of the Han Dynasty, the glazed daily wares were not carved with water ripples, string patterns and triangle patterns, and the glaze layer was as thick as clotted fat, with the most charming color of pink blue. The texture and the fire are in line with the standard of porcelain. The shape of the ware is mainly four series of jars with wide mouth, flat round belly and flat bottom.
In the early period of the Western Han Dynasty, a few vessels, such as urn and pot, occasionally had some less obvious rope patterns; after the middle period of the Western Han Dynasty, the rope patterns were basically extinct. The popular pottery beans in the Warring States period were occasionally seen in the early Western Han Dynasty, but they soon disappeared. This rare handed down masterpiece with cocoon shaped grain pattern is of high historical representativeness and collection value.
