White-glazed Hexagonal Pillow with Brown Dots and Carved Floral Patterns

Yangzhou Museum

Yangzhou Museum

Passed down from earlier generations, this hexagonal pillow has a slightly sloped upper face featuring a hexagonal frame composed of carved parallel lines, in which there are 12 floral patterns each consisting of seven or eight brown dots. Rectangular frames were carved on all of the six sides of the pillow, one on each side, filled with deep-line carved chrysanthemum flowers on the front and back sides, and orchid motifs on the rest. All the sidelines and corners are embellished with brown dots. The greyish white body is covered with white glaze all over except the bottom.
