The Chinese Ru Royal Kiln porcelain

Ru ware is an extremely rare type of Chinese pottery from the Song dynasty (960 - 1279), produced for the imperial court for a very short period from approximately 1085-1115.  The Song ceramics are primarily stonewares which were made for court tribute, imperial use or fine every day wares. These were made at kilns in both north and south China during the Northern Song (960-1127) and the Southern Song (1128-1279) periods. These ceramics are known as Ru wares and they were made near modern day Ruzhou in Henan province.
