Blue & White Porcelain Three Generations Qing Emperor Set
China Furniture Online
These detailed porcelain statuettes represent three generations of the most popular emperors in Chinese history. The oldest of the three Qing (1644-1912) emperors, Kang Xi (reigning 1662-1722), reestablished peace by adopting much of the Ming bureaucratic structure and espousing Confucian ideals of government, ushering in an era of reconstruction. His son Yong Zheng (reigning 1723-35) completed the institutional restructuring of the Qing state, but it was under Kang Xi’s grandson, Qian Lon (reigning 1736-95), that the empire reached the height of its power. Set of three.
