The Collection of Dresden National Art Museum recently announced the discovery of a very rare Ru kiln porcelain in the Northern Song Dynasty of China.
It is reported that this Ruyao porcelain bowl found in the Dresden porcelain collection was originally misclassified as Korean porcelain from the 10th to the 13th centuries.
In 2018, the Palace Museum suggested that the collection be studied as Ru porcelain.
Recently, it was confirmed by the world-renowned Chinese ceramics expert Regina Krahl that this work is indeed a precious Chinese Ruyao porcelain.
Krall pointed out that there are fewer than 100 pieces of Ruki porcelain worldwide, each of which is registered, so the discovery of Dresden is of great significance to the international community.
Julia Weber, the current director of Dresden porcelain collection, called the discovery a “real sensation”.
She said that the Dresden porcelain collection contains many precious and little-known treasures, but found that the legendary porcelain was a “real sensation”.
It is understood that this is the 88th Ru porcelain work found in the world.
In 2017, similar Ruyao porcelain bowls sold 37.7 million US dollars at London auction houses.
Currently, Dresden is the largest collection of Chinese porcelain outside Asia.
