Choryo (Zhang Liang) was a Chinese statesman of the early Han dynasty (206 BCE - 220 CE). He is best known for assisting the first Han emperor, Gaozu, to establish the Han dynasty in the late third century BCE.

A paper label affixed to the storage box states that the piece was handed down in the Tokugawa family, Kii Province.
