This oval cup has two flanged handles and is sometimes called a 'winged cup' or an 'ear cup'. It was a common form of dining vessel in the Han dynasty (206 BC-AD 220), used to contain either food or wine. Most winged cups were made of lacquer. This earthenware version was made for burial, not daily use.
