This book is the catalogue of the exhibition “Traditional Jingdezhen Wares from Contemporary Kilns”. The exhibits include jars, vases, bowls, flowerpots, brush pots, dishes, and tea sets. In recent years, many collectors and scholars have been shocked by the wonderful replicas of the Ming (1368–1644) and Qing (1644–1911) imperial wares made by the masters in Jingdezhen, Jiangxi Province. These wares are painted and glazed in traditional styles, in which their lively forms and beautiful colours are undoubtedly the continuation of the skills and intelligence of Jingdezhen potters. They provide a good opportunity for visitors to compare the genuine old works and the modern imitations.
