Under the Chinese Qing dynasty (1644-1911), a multitude of ceramic varieties was developed including the red sang de boeuf (FR) i.e. “oxblood” red monochrome glazes.
The term “Langyao hong ” appeared in a Chinese manuscript from the beginning of the 18th century that talked about Lang Tingji, governor of a China province, which had made researches on past dynasties porcelain, including glazes. He allowed the development of a new colour thanks to the copper oxide fired at more than 1200°C in a kiln with an oxygen reduction: the sang de boeuf oxblood red or “Langyao”, combining glow and depth.
During its manufacture, the porcelain can take two aspects: a solid red or a speckled red with darker spots under a cracked transparent glaze. All along centuries, this production was realized with more or less care, giving it different aspects as a darker colour on some parts of the item or a yellow cracks net.
Normally, the term “oxblood red” only concerned the red monochromes produced under the Kangxi era (1662-1722) but can be also employed to describe later objects as our pair of lamps.

Qing is the last imperial dynasty to reign over China, from 1644 to 1921. Of Manchu origin, it succeeded the last ethnically Chinese dynasty, the Ming Dynasty. In the second half of the 19th century, the Qing Empire experienced a long decline, weakened by internal conflicts as well as by international pressure, and the imperial regime was finally overthrown by the Chinese revolution of 1911, giving way to the Republic of China. . The reign of the Qing Dynasty ended on February 12, 1912, with the abdication of China’s last emperor, Puyi, then six years old.
