Why this is a
Masterpiece

Longquan ware is a new type of green-glazed ware which replaced Yue ware in the south. The glaze of Longquan ware is thick and opalescent. Its varied shades of green give the ceramic a jade-like quality.

History of the Object
The flourishing domestic and foreign trade in South China during the Southern Song (1127 – 1279) and Yuan (1271 – 1368) dynasties boosted the production of Longquan ware. The major kilns were located in eastern and southern Zhejiang province. There were also kilns in Jiangxi and Fujian provinces that were imitating the Longquan style.
