Two Important Historical Records of the Imperial Kiln
In the year 1279 (the 16th year of the Yuan Dynasty), Emperor Kublai Khan established the Fuliang Porcelain Bureau in Zhushan, Jingdezhen, which was responsible for producing porcelain exclusively for the imperial court. Later, in 1369 (the 2nd year of the Ming Dynasty), Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang transformed the Fuliang Porcelain Bureau into the Imperial Porcelain Factory, which was subsequently renamed the Imperial Kiln during the Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty. The Imperial Kiln continued to produce porcelain for over 700 years until 1911.
