Why this is a
Masterpiece

This meiping jar is typical of northern Chinese fahua wares.

History of the Object
Fahua wares were first made in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), principally in Shanxi Province and became popular in the 14th and 15th centuries. The potters used cloisonne technique to produce the relief outlines of the designs and then filled in sancai (three-colour) glazes.
