Unearthed from the eastern suburbs of Xi'an City in 1985

The round container is made with neriage, a special technique originated in the Tang Dynasty for making pottery and porcelain wares. Neriage is characterized by decorating the exterior of wares with fine grains made of clay slices in different colors. Few such artifacts have ever been found because of its complicated craftsmanship.
