Catalogue Note

The term 'langyao' is derived from Lang Tingji, governor of Jiangxi province and supervisor of the imperial kilns from 1705 to 1712 who was known for reviving copper-red glazes.


The shape of this vase is a classic form of langyao ware. Several similar examples can be found in museums and private collections. See a taller vase of this type in the collection of the National Palace Museum, Taipei, illustrated in the Catalogue of a Special Exhibition of Ch’ing Dynasty Monochrome Porcelains in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1981, cat. no. 1. Another example with a metal mouthrim in the collection of the Nanjing Museum, was exhibited and published in Qing Imperial Porcelain of the Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong Reigns, Nanjing and Hong Kong, 1995, cat. no. 1. A third example of this type was in the exhibition Chinese Porcelain, The S. C. Ko Tianminlou Collection, Hong Kong, 1987, pl. 121.
