A study of these exceptionally rare and treasured ceramics, 'mise' wares, produced during the late Tang and Five Dynasties period at the yue kilns in Zhejiang province. These near-mystical and elusive wares were the finest quality products of the Yue kilns fired during the Tang, Five Dynasties and Northern Song and exclusively used as tribute wares by the royal households of the time. This work shows numerous near-intact pieces and sherds excavated from the yue kiln sites at Shanglinhu. Good colour illustrations. Text in Chinese. A useful addition the the sparse literature on the subject.
