Jingdezhen Imperial Kilns Museum ed: JINGDEZHEN CHUTU MING HONGWU GUANYAO CIQI. Ming Imperial Porcelain of the Hongwu Reign from Jingdezhen. Beijing, 2019. 263 pp. Full page colour plates throughout. 30x23 cm. Cloth.
Good visual reference on excavated imperial porcelain dating from the first reign of the Ming dynasty, Hongwu. Most of the pieces have been reconstructed, a few remain as incomplete pieces or sherds. The large majority (85) were excavated in 1994 from the kiln sites in Jingdezhen, China. A final selection of 16 pieces were excavated in 2016 - these include tiles, a dragon spout and roof tiles. Illustrated throughout, most examples shown in numerous views. Whilst much of the 1994 material has been previously published, they benefit from new and more detailed photography. In Chinese.
