本品角盃,器形優雅,珍珠地飾花葉紋,精巧細緻,當屬現存唐代角盃中精佳之品。布里斯托城市藝術畫廊收藏一褐釉例,器形相近,紋飾較簡單,出自 Schiller 收藏,曾展於《The Arts of the T’ang Dynasty》,洛杉磯郡藝術博物館,洛杉磯,1957年,編號184;另比一綠釉例,龍口銜珠,圖見《世界陶磁全集》,卷11,東京,1976年,圖版129,兩度售於倫敦蘇富比,先於1981年4月7日,編號140,後於1986年6月10日,編號14。另可比較數鴨形盃例,其一現藏於北京故宮博物院,圖載《故宮博物院藏品大系·陶瓷編·隋唐五代(二)》,卷5,北京,2013年,圖版295;另一例載於《The Charles B. Hoyt Collection in the Museum of Fine Arts》,波士頓,1964年,卷1,圖版94;第三例曾展於東方陶瓷學會《Arts of the T’ang Dynasty》,倫敦,1955年,編號146,售於倫敦蘇富比1970年7月14日,編號9;再比一例,售於倫敦蘇富比1983年6月21日,編號95。

角盃,原為牛角或犀牛角製,飲用器,於中亞及西亞以銀或寶石製作,後傳至中國,最早於漢代已有所見,材質多樣,如陶、琉璃以及銀等。唐代角盃,多以波斯銀器為模本,如見倫敦大英博物館收藏一白釉例,錄 Margaret Medley,《T’ang Pottery & Porcelain》,倫敦,1981年,圖版4,然見本品角盃其龍首形制等,可知其已吸納中式元素。
