Kowloon, Hong KongLive Auction
Description: This is a rare Hongwu Period (1368-1398) underglaze red dragon Meiping. Hongwu is the first Ming Dynasty emperor and red color is the favorite color of this period. Underglaze red is very difficult to achieve because if the temperature is not right, it will turn grey or faded out. This vase is indeed an excellent Hongwu vase.
