The top surface has more discoloration and minor scratches which indicates, that the repurposing was done some time ago...

Very rare pair of pottery bears. The meaning of bears of during Han Dynasty is somewhat enigmatic, as they are “everywhere” in their material culture i.e., bronze, jade and pottery, but what they signify remains unexplained.

Both have an amber colored vitreous glaze and appeared to be mostly hand carved...
