Why this is a
Masterpiece

This porcelain ewer with a jade green glaze is a fine example. The shape has been inspired by Near Eastern metalwork. During the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368 AD) Longquan celadon makers continued to find a ready market both in China and abroad. The markets in the Near East were particularly valuable and the Longquan kilns began making wares that specifically catered to Near Eastern tastes in terms of size, shape and decoration.

History of the Object
Wine-drinking continued to be important in Chinese culture in spite of the impact of imperial wars and changes of dynasties. This custom and the export trade of vessels also influenced adjacent cultures such as those of Japan, Korea and South-East Asia. During the Yuan Dynasty when the kilns no longer enjoyed imperial patronage, their celadon glazed ceramics continued to find a ready market both in China and for export. The markets in the Near East were particularly valuable and the Longquan kilns began making wares that specifically catered to Near Eastern tastes in terms of size, shape and decoration.
