Jun wares

Jun wares are a style of Chinese ceramics produced chiefly in Henan province in the 10th to 15th centuries. They are characterized by bright blue, green, or purple hues, produced in part through the inclusion of copper minerals added into the wet glaze just before firing.

Jun wares were rarely sold to Imperial patrons, and were rarely exported overseas, remaining rather within local or provincial circulation within China.
