Cover: A kuan jar from the reign of the Emperor Chia Ching (1522-1566) bearing the imperial reign mark. The decoration of children at play (wa wa) is typical of the almost complete breakaway of Chia Ching wares from the classical designs of the fifteenth century and it foreshadows the much greater freedom of decoration which was to come to fruition in the "transition" wares produced in the period between the fall of the Ming dynasty and the accession of the Manchu Ch'ing dynasty in the mid-seventeenth century. This jar comes from the collection of the National Palace Museum, Taipei, Taiwan. An almost identical one is to be found in the Freer Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.
