Changsha Porcelain from NMH Collection
The Changsha kiln from Tang dynasty was first discovered in 1956. Porcelain from the Changsha kiln, which is located in Hunan Province, China, was the earliest trade porcelain of China. Its underglaze color, especially the copper red glaze, started a new age of color porcelain for later generations. The most representative form of Changsha porcelain is water dropper; these artifacts are usually decorated with flower and bird pattern, animal pattern, or calligraphic pattern.

This exhibition, scheduled to run through April 7, 2013 at National Museum of History in Taipei (|22|713&unkey=53), displays about one hundred pieces of rare Changsha porcelain vessels in the Museum’s collection.
