XU Ye-jing;Liling Jinqiu Printing House;
There are two pieces of bronze wares displayed in the gallery of bronze chariots and horses in Qin terracotta warriors museum, which were unearthed together with bronze chariots and horses in the west side of Qin terracotta warriors tomb in December of 1980. No academic agreement has ever been reached as to interpretation of their functions because of their peculiar shape and structure. Over 10 years of exploration and simulation tests on the basis of their functionality reveals that the U-shaped wares should serve as the tablewares used by the chariots owners, particularly those of special noble identity on their way.
