The “Pear-Shaped” vase also called “Yuhuchunping” during the Tang dynasty (608–917 AD) was used as a holy water vase in temples. The shape was then popularized during the Song dynasty, and was mainly used as a wine vessel. Later, the refined shape became a classical vase style, and continues to be copied as a model.
