Why this is a
Masterpiece

This piece is an example of early Ming official wares of the Yongle reign, with a characteristic decorative floral pattern. This twining floral pattern reveals an inherited similarity to Blue-and-White porcelain produced at Jingdezhen in the Yuan Dynasty. It was made for the Near Eastern market and its design is based on a Near eastern metal-work shape. The piece demonstrated an evolved decorative repertoire which was first seen on Yuan Dynasty porcelains made for export to the Near East.

History of the Object
The Ming Dynasty became the first dynasty to establish official kilns for imperial ware at Jingdezhen, and it was also in the Ming period that porcelain for imperial use first came to be manufactured with marks incorporating the name of the dynasty and a reign title.
