An important exhibition of imperial Hongwu and Yongle porcelains excavated at Jingdezhen. These pieces were deliberately smashed and concealed at the factory because they fell below the standard of perfection demanded by the court. Unearthed for the first time and pieced together, they provide significant clues and answer important questions regarding the manufacturing of imperial porcelains in the early Ming period. With an essay by Liu Xinyuan.
