Description

Jun porcelain (钧瓷) was exclusively reserved for use within the imperial palace by the Royal emperor himself over a thousand years ago. During this time it was forbidden for the population to even own such items Unless it was given as a gift from the imperial family or the emperor himself. In the Song Dynasty, it was conferred as the governmental porcelain by the famous emperor Song Huizong, because of the rich and vivid colours. In ancient times it was considered a privilege and an honour to own.

This Jun porcelain (钧瓷) vase comes from the original ancient village that crafted masterpieces like this for the imperial palace and is made to the same very high standard. The rich violet colour of the vase comes from the coal-fired kiln used. Finally, to finish off this piece there are two traditional tiger heads which are considered symbols of power and wealth in Chinese culture.
