The common literature of the ancient period refers to a lot of household goods. The rich used bowls and plates made of gold and silver, though the common person probably used only brass, and the poor, earthenware, utensils. Iron drinking glasses were also not unknown.
From the mud tablets depicting household scenes we know that people used earthenware toys, flowervases, beds, spouted water vessels, bowls, glasses and plates, storage jars, ‘loTA’, inkholder, lampholder, wide mouthed water vessels, seats, bookshelves, etc.
