Porcelain Blue and White Qing Emperors
6"W x 4"D x 17.25"H (each, set of three)
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. Sold as a set of three.
