Longquan was a market town in Zhejiang province. These green wares were produced at a great many kilns in the area during the Song, Yuan and Ming dynasties (overall AD 960-1644). While Longquan wares were particularly valued in China for their jade-like colour and texture, they were also exported in great quantities. In the Near and Middle East, large Longquan ware dishes were used for communal dining, and for testing food before a meal. It was believed that the greenware would react if poisoned food were placed on the dish.
