Cup (Plain 130ml)
Rong Yao Fang
The imperial kiln from Qianlong period, Qing Dynasty. Their products were often stamped with the emperor’s seal of “Le Shan Tang”, Qianlong’s library. The Family Peng is the family who has been taking care of the kiln for 8th generations. The traditional Jingdezhen hand throw, hand turned and hand painted ceramics’ technique are well kept there.
These cups are designed to be used in conjunction with a small pot or gaiwan. They are handmade with high quality porcelain, which avoids the plastic-ness that many other Jingdezhen ware has, while the colour is off-white with a slight celadon tinge.

An imperial kiln founded during the reign of the great tea loving emperor Qianlong (1711-1799). Their porcelain from this period is often stamped with the emperor’s seal of “Le Shan Tang”, which literally translates as Qianlong’s library. The Peng family have been looking looking after this heritage kiln for eight generations. Although the location of the kiln is in Jingdezhen, the porcelain centre of China, few kilns can match the Peng family’s skills with their traditional hand thrown, hand turned and handpainted ceramics.
