The “General” jar and cover was invented in Jingdezhen during the early Qing dynasty. It got its name because its lid was shaped like the cap of Chinese military "General" of the Qing dynasty. They were made in Jingdezhen until the late Qing Dynasty, in the official and civilian kilns. This “General” jar was painted in falangcai enamel with double dragon chasing pearl, five colored auspicious clouds and five bat patterns. Falangcai ceramics were created and used by the Emperors of the Qing dynasty. They were specially used by the Qing Court. The double dragon chasing pearl, five colored auspicious clouds and five bats were patterns commonly used by the Qing Court, and the five-clawed dragons were limited to use by the Qing Court only. Therefore, this jar and cover is a modern reproduction of the best Imperial ceramics of the Qing dynasty.
This jar and cover was the work of the artist, He Yao, a National Level First Grade Technician, Intangible Cultural Property Holder, Senior Master of Arts and Crafts of the Jiangxi Province and Jingdezhen Ceramics Institute, Appraiser of Yuan, Ming and Qing Ceramics, born in 1985 and moved to Jingdezhen following his parents when he was a child.
