Porcelain pillows first appeared in the Sui Dynasty (581-618) and their mass production began in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Porcelain pillows reached the climax in terms of production and use in the Song, Jin and Yuan dynasties (10th-14th century) and gradually phased out in the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911) with the emergence of better pillow-making materials. They continued to be made as decorative items.
