"RED EARTHENWARE BOWL, DECORATED WITH A SLIP AND INLAID WITH GLASS  PASTE. Eastern Zhou period, 4th-3rd century BC. This bowl was probably  intended to copy a more precious and possibly foreign vessel in bronze  or even silver. Glass was little used in China. Its popularity at the  end of the Eastern Zhou period was probably due to foreign influence."  British Museum
