public_access_description
In the Tang dynasty (618-907) daily utensils were usually made of stoneware and goods for burial were made of earthenware. This vase was probably a funerary piece, as lead-glazed vessels could poison the user. The colour scheme of green, amber and yellow is generally known as 'Tang sancai', meaning 'three colours of the Tang dynasty'.
