    With a stupa-like cover, this type of jar was called by Chinese scholars yingping which refers to a big jar with small mouth and globular body, usually serving as a wine container. Flower-head appliqués were popular ornaments and can be widely found on sancai stonewares of the Tang dynasty, see a similar decoration on a sancai jar, Tang dynasty, in the collection of Seikado Bunko Art Museum, Tokyo, illustrated by Masahiko Sato in Ceramic Art of the World, vol.11, Tokyo, 1976, p.67, pl.48. Compare with the similar texture of glaze on a vase with handles, Tang dynasty, which is illustrated in Chinese Ceramics in the Idemitsu Collection, 1987, pl.22.
