Description: 东汉 塑雕蓝玻璃四合院
Eastern Han, Blue-Glass Model of a Courtyard
With ribbed-tile roof, a quadrangle surrounded by four buildings with a front entrance. Glass containing lead and barium had emerged as early as the Western Zhou Dynasty. The lead-barium glass requites a relatively ow melting temperature. It looks sparkling and crystal clear, but thin and brittle, and cannot resist sharp drop or rise in temperature. It is therefore unfit for making utensils or apparatuses. Often lead-barium glass was processed to make ornaments, ritual objects or funerary objects. Burial objects are models especially made to be buried with the dead, such as courtyards, reflect family wealth.
Eastern Han Dynasty

(For reference: Eastern Han Dynasty Glass: Glass Cup, Collection at Guangxi Museum, Unearthed from the Huangnigang M1, Hepu County, Guangxi)

Dimensions: Height: 5 in (12.7 cm)
Width: 12½ in (31.8 cm)
