Vases of this type were originally derived from guan ware of the Song dynasty (960 - 1279) and demonstrate the mastery of the Qing dynasty potters over their use of glaze techniques. They made innovations and developments on some of the traditional glazes, from the the ‘Jun’ wares which the flambe glazes were derived. The form of this vase was revived during the reign of the Yongzheng Emperor and covered in Song inspired glazes. For the Song prototype of the shape see a smaller guan vase, in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, included in the the Special Exhibition of Sung Dynasty Kuan Ware, National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1989, cat. no. 21.
