Excavated in Dongfeng Brick & Tile Factory of Yangzhou city in 1980, this pillow in the shape of a hollow cuboid, has a curvy upper face and a hole on one of its sides. A maple leave was attached on both its front and rear walls before the tea-fanning glaze was applied, ending up with two body-exposed spots in the shape of maple leaves. This piece made by Shouzhou Kiln is covered with glaze all over except the bottom, revealing the smooth greyish white body.
