Meiping (梅 瓶) literally means "plum vase" and is traditionally used to display plum blossom branches.
The meiping shape was first made during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). It was originally used as a wine vessel, but since the Song Dynasty (960-1279) it also became popular as a plum vase and was given the name "meiping". The vases are long, with a narrow base that spreads gracefully into a broad body, followed by a sharply rounded shoulder, a short and narrow neck, and a small opening.
These vases are made of copper applied with red cloisonne. Made in China.
