“Meiping” means plum vase. The plum shape vessel was first seen in the Tang dynasty (618–907) used for storage, burial rituals and wine transportation. The shape then emerged as a decorative and collectible item in the Song era and was popular through the Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties. This design has the neck style associated with Yuan Dynasty vessels.
