Round mouth, with a circle of copper buckle embedded along the mouth edge, curved shallow wall, flat bottom without feet. The full glaze is fired, and the whole body is covered with blue glaze. The glaze is pink green, and some parts show pink luster. Three small studs are arranged on the bottom, and two characters of “Fenghua” are engraved in the center. Similar shapes can also be found in the kiln site of Qingliang Temple in Baofeng County, Henan Province. Through the chronicle of “Huo Ji File”, we can trace back the spread of this work in the Qing Palace. First of all, in the 7th year of Emperor Yongzheng’s reign (1729), a box containing 29 pieces of Ru kiln appeared in the Qing Palace. From the name of the product listed, it can be seen that “one piece of round brush with Chinese characters” should refer to this exhibit. In the sixth year of the reign of Emperor Qianlong (1741), this box of Ru kilns was given an ivory label under the emperor’s edict, and was named “Tasting Qing Yao”. In the 16th year of the reign of Emperor Qianlong (1751), the inner box was damaged by insects, which caused renewed concern and the packaging was replaced.
