Published for an exhibition of Qing porcelain held in the United States by the Percival David Foundation and the American Federation of Arts.

The majority of the more than sixty items in the exhibition were made at imperial kilns in Jingdezhen, Jiangxi Province, during the reign of the emperors Kangxi (1662-1722), Yongzheng (1723-35), or Qianlong (1736-95). The porcelains produced under these three rulers represent the apogee of Qing ceramic achievement, benefiting from technological developments and artistic innovations. Included were plates, bowls, vases, cups, and teapots, along with a unique group of works that would have stood on a Qing scholar's table-a wrist rest, an ink palette and cover, a brush washer, and a table screen.
