A ceramic pillow sounds uncomfortable but they were used in China for many centuries. Some scholars think the soft curve and height could comfortably support the head and neck while also preserving the intricate hairstyles of upper-class women. This sculptural headrest was made over a century ago and has a stunning sancai (three-color) glaze; a technique perfected by the finest Chinese Artisans.
