The mark, in ancient Chinese letters, stamped on the bottom tells us with absolute precision that the vases were produced between 1950 and 1970 in kilns in Jingdezhen, China. In China, the name Jingdezhen is practically synonymous with pottery. The city is said to have produced Fine wares for official use as early as the 6th Century AD and is known to have continued to produce excellent wares during various dynasties (Tang, Song, Nan). Under the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Jingdezhen began to produce high-quality items on a large scale for the use of the imperial family and the government in general. Throughout the Ming period Jingdezhen, rather than an imperial factory, was the center of procurement on behalf of the government. The ceramic industry flourished during this period, producing goods of superlative quality. The Ming and Qing dynasties took the porcelain industry to an exceptional level, and Jingdezhen established its primary position in the world of Chinese ceramics and porcelain. With the establishment of the People's Republic of China (1949), the Jingdezhen factory was rebuilt with the goal of creating Quin Guan ware by adopting the Republic's operating system with the development of the nation's systemization. The ceramic industry was reorganized in those years in the form of cooperative associations and resumed production on a larger scale than ever before; in addition to domestic porcelain, the city has also been producing a wide range of other excellent traditional ceramic products and other modern designs since 1950. The locality of the former imperial kiln has become a site of ceramic kilns that have many advantages and innovations and reflect advanced techniques; the many products embody the aesthetic taste of traditional Chinese culture and represent the most complete Industrial system of porcelain and ceramic handicrafts in China.
