Chamber Pot, Western Jin, 265 - 316 AD

Chamber Pot, Western Jin, 265 - 316 AD. Shanghai Museum.

Here's something you don't see every day: a celadon chamber pot. The user would have enjoyed an intimate, and amusing, encounter with the gaping maw of this porcelain tiger (huzi). The pits and grooves on the vessel's side may be a sketchy indication of a bixie's wing.
