There are 308 vats of different sizes in the Palace Museum, of which the iron one was made in the Ming Dynasty and the copper one in the Qing Dynasty. The gold-plated copper jars were cast during the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty. There are 18 jars left, each weighing 2 tons, and the gold-plated (gilded) is 100 Liang. In winter, the water in the VAT is easy to freeze. What should we do? The wisdom of the ancients is infinite. They set up a special "iron drawer" in the big tank to store carbon fire, and under each big tank, charcoal can be placed to make a fire. At the same time, the palace people also considerately "put on" cotton clothes for the big tanks, so as to prevent the water in the tank from freezing. In order to serve these big tanks, the internal affairs office also set up a special "fire ripening place".
In ancient times, the copper VAT not only can be used to hold water, but also has a certain emphasis on Fengshui. For example, the copper VAT on both sides of the gate of the courtyard looks generous and noble, and also has the meaning of "water energy gathering wealth" in Fengshui, which means that the wealth is widely advanced. Therefore, it can be seen that the copper VAT occupies a very high position in ancient times.
