Shows the best of the hoard of Yuan dynasty ceramics excavated in 2015 at a site within the remains of the old Liling kiln site in China's Hunan province. A site secondary only perhaps to Jingdezhen in terms of ceramic production in China. A total of 264 objects (or groups of objects) are shown, comprising sherds or reconstructed pieces. In six sections: Qingbai Wares (47); Celadon Wares (38); Wares with Dark Reddish Brown Glaze; Bicolour Glazed Porcelain; Ceramics as Architectural Material; Ceramics as Kiln Furniture and Potter's Tools. A good visual reference for research into Yuan ceramics. Titles to each section and brief captions to plates in English, otherwise Chinese text.
