In the Qing dynasty (1644-1911) Jingdezhen potters experimented with new forms and glazes, often with support from the emperors and state officials. Chinese porcelain was admired and collected all over the world. The tradition of inscribing the emperor's reign title on the wares continued. The form and decoration of this wine cup and tray are typical of the Qianlong reign period.
