Ru-ware ( 汝窯) porcelain is the most celebrated of all wares in the history of Chinese ceramics, produced for the Imperial court for a short 20 year or so period around 1100. Fewer than 100 complete pieces survive, with only some 4 pieces in private ownership. Tiny and delicate, the pieces were mostly used as drinking vessels or incense burning or as small containers.
