Wine Vessel (Jue)

Wine Vessel (Jue) The jue was the most prevalent Shang ritual bronze vessel. It functioned as a cup for drinking millet-fermented beverages and was usually found in tombs and burial sites along with the cylindrical wine-drinking vessel known as the gu. The two vessels were most likely used together in ceremonies. http://www.marymount.k12.ny.us/marynet/TeacherResources/bronzesproject/html/bklynmuse.htm
