These ear cups - erbei - originally coated with a green lead glaze, have developed a very attractive iridescence over many years of burial. This form, used for drinking wine, was made in a variety of different materials in the eastern Han Dynasty (25-220CE), bronze, jade, glass, lacquer, and, of course, ceramics. These two cups are moulded on the exterior with a wave pattern and a saw tooth band below the rim, imitating the decoration on a bronze model. Length: 11 and 11.5 cm. Condition: One is intact, the other repaired. They both have the usual glaze chips along the rim and around the impressions of the supports on which they were fired. Ex Sotheby’s. Price: USD $1080; CAD $1400 (13% HST will be applied on all sales in Canada)
