This is a tall Song dynasty (960 – 1276 A.D) yingqing or qingpai meiping or plum vase. It stands on a recess base, rising from a small base to a baluster shape body with a short shoulder towards a mouth rim with a ring in between. The shoulder is circled with incised double ring. The body is divided into six symmetrical portions by two parallel incised lines starting from the outer ring of the shoulder towards all the way to the footrim. The whole body of the meiping is also incised with very fine comb hairline design. The fine combed hairline can only be observed on close inspection of the meiping body.

There is a possible repair work on the luting portion between the upper and lower part of the body as shown in photograph 4. Also minor abrasion, pin hole, degradation, chip and minor manufacturing faults as shown in the various photographs.

The measurement of the yingqing meiping or plum vase: height 30cm and the width is 18.2.
