The rich texture and depth of color of the glaze on the present vase recalls the famed langyao glaze of the Kangxi period, and is quite different from the even-textured, liver-red glaze most often seen on wares of the Yongzheng and Qianlong periods.
For other meiping of similar proportions and size, but with more typically seen liver-red glaze, see the Yongzheng-marked example in the Shenyang Imperial Palace Museum and illustrated in The Prime Cultural Relics Collected by the Shenyang Imperial Palace Museum – The Chinaware Volume The Second Part, Shenyang, 2008, pp. 12-13, no. 8. A Qianlong-marked meiping from the Ohlmer Collection was included in the exhibition Chinesisches Porzellan, Roemer Museum, Hildesheim, 1981, no. 99.
