Mi Se was a lost art of Tang Dynasty, Secret glaze porcelain was in documents but never was found in actual form. It was described as a royal color China ware for the royal court of Tang dynasty, also for Buddhist temples. Until 1987 14 pieces were found in Baoji Fa Men Temple, under ground of a pagoda ruin, the temple was built in Tang dynasty，the oldest and grandest temple in China today. Only 14 pieces of Mi Se China ware in the world today, were clearly documented in a list of worship wares, including a complete set of pure gold tea tools, accompanied a small piece of Bodhisattva's bone.
