Jin Dynasty
White Glazed Sleeping Beauty Porcelain Pillow

This is another view of the white glazed porcelain pillow of a lady shown on the previous page. You can still buy pillows of this type in the markets in China, but not of porcelain! They are usually either hard stuffed cotton or woven straw for the summer. Most people use Western type pillows today. The pillow was made during the Jin Dynasty (1115 - 1234) and was excavated at a site in Huangling County.
