A green and ochre antique Chinese glazed earthenware wedding bed roof tile from the Ming dynasty in China circa 1368-1644. Originally used where the roof lines met, this piece represented the peace and harmony of a happy marriage. The brilliant colours enabled it to be seen from a distance and the detail rewarded closer viewing. The rectangular openings on the sides indicate where the wooden roof beams were inserted.
