Porcelain from the Kangxi period (1662-1722) is one of the most recognizable and ubiquitous areas of Chinese ceramics. Ceramics from this reign are found in collections and museums all over the world.

Kangxi emperor (康熙lived 1654-1722, reigned 1662-1722) was the second emperor of China during the newly-established Manchu Qing dynasty. The Manchu people conquered the preceding Ming dynasty, which was ruled by the Han Chinese.

The word for "vase" is "ping" - which is a symbol for peace, since the word "vase" in Chinese sounds much like the word for "peace".
