History of the Object
Imperial kilns are kilns built and operated by the court. Its wares are meant only for imperial use. They were able to obtain quality clay and ingredients, congregate all the capable craftsmen, and control glaze formulas and techniques. Their products undeniably represented the highest standard in the ceramic industry of their times. By the Five Dynasties (907 – 960), there were already wares of imperial nature. During the Northern Song Dynasty (960 – 1127) ‘imperial kiln’ became an official reference. The imperial courts of the Ming (1368 – 1644) and Qing (1644 – 1127) dynasties sited their kilns in Jingdezhen, Jiangxi province and produced ceramic wares according to imperial demand.
