The Palace Museum, also known as the Forbidden City, is showcasing porcelain ware of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), a period considered among the best in Chinese ceramic-making.

The ongoing exhibition in Beijing, titled Imperial Ceramics and Porcelain of the Great Ming: Comparison of Excavated and Extant Ceramic Pieces from Jiajing (1522-66), Longqing (1567-72) and Wanli (1573-1620) Reigns, is the sixth and final edition in a series of similar displays over the past three years.

It opened for public viewing on Nov 6 and will run through Feb 22.

The 298 exhibits from the former palace's royal collections and archaeological discoveries from Jingdezhen, Jiangxi province, will give visitors a panoramic view of the styles of porcelain ware created over the course of a century and also portray a general picture of changes in society during imperial times.
