Square Porcelain Pillow
Porcelain pillows are both cool and provide a hard surface for reclining during the hot summer season, not only cooling the head but also providing a cervical spinal massage which was popular among the middle aged and elderly. These porcelain bear painting designs featuring native customs, thereby affording both functionality and aesthetic beauty, with vents on both sides which kept them cool, and served as a form of safe to hold one’s important personal items while sleeping , so they could sleep peacefully.
Jade Dragon Double Happiness Pillow
The Chinese are Jade lovers, who considered Jade to be the quintessentially beautiful stone. Fine quality jade can be carved into treasured ornaments, while more coarse Jade could be made into horizontal carved jade pillows, which are rare artifacts in deep. This features a dragon and phoenix design with a central sculpted "Double Happiness" emblem, reminiscent of the traditional blessings for a new home; the side is decorated with rattan and leaves, while the pillow is hollow inside, and can be lifted up and down, providing a safe to store hidden treasures in the pillow while sleeping.
Round Porcelain Pillow
Among all of the porcelain pillows, this porcelain pillow is perhaps rougher, featuring a coarse texture of clay, so its sound is also not as crisp as the square pillow, but it is hard to say whether this pillow did not allow one to sleep with more "peace of mind" or not.
