Why this is a
Masterpiece

The plate with a flat base has a pure white and refined texture. The foliated edge of its rim is shaped into an eight-lobe sunflower. There are patterns of honeysuckle in a circle on the plate brim and those of a pair of twin lotus flowers on one stalk and float grass in the centre of the bottom. The plate is brilliant in colour and graceful in decoration, which makes it a masterpiece of the Blue and White Porcelains produced by Jingdezhen Kiln during the Yuan Dynasty.

History of the Object
Jingdezhen is known as the "Porcelain Capital" because it has been producing quality pottery for 1700 years. Jingdezhen's porcelain has been famous not only in China but in time it became known in the whole world.
