Catalogue Note

Porcelains glazed in deep blue such as the present were reserved for imperial ritual use at the Tiantan, Altar of Heaven. Hence, the term 'sacrificial blue' is sometimes used to describe this type of glaze. A similar meiping from the collection of K.S. Lo was included in the Min Chiu Society exhibition Monochrome Ceramics of the Ming and Ch'ing Dynasties, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong, 1977, cat. no. 38. 


See also a Kangxi mark and period 'sacrificial red' glazed meiping in the collection of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, illustrated in Qing Imperial Porcelain of the Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong Reigns, Nanjing and Hong Kong, 1995. pl. 4. For a larger Yongzheng mark and period blue-glazed example, see one exhibited in Ethereal Elegance: Porcelain Vases of the Imperial Qing - The Huaihaitang Collection, Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2007, cat. no. 13.
