Yeguan Cup (Night Glittering Cup)

Last updated by fabiowzgogo at 2016/6/13

Yeguan Cup has been well-known since ancient China. It gets its name because when it is filled with wine, moonlight is able to penetrate into the cup and makes it glittering. In the reign of King Muwang of Zhou Dynasty, the local rulers in west China once presented Yeguan Cups to the court. This is recorded in the book Haineishizhouji (The Ten States in China) written by a famous writer Dongfang Shuo of Han Dynasty. According to the book, the cup is made of white jade and it glitters during night.
