Jun porcelain is famous for its changeable glaze colors. Some Jun porcelain vessels can be traced back to the Song Dynasty, but works such as flower pots and pot supports have been considered to have been produced in the middle of the 15th century due to the discovery of new materials from archaeological excavations. The purple color spots formed naturally during the firing process of this Jun kiln porcelain plate seem to confirm the appreciation of scholars in the late Qing Dynasty for Jun kiln porcelain that “the setting sun suddenly turns purple into blue”. The shape of the whole work and the characteristics of full glaze branch burning are similar to those unearthed in Haidian District, Beijing. The color spots in the glaze can also be seen in the 13th century tombs, so we can know that this kind of work was burned in the Jin and Yuan Dynasties.
