The Ru Kiln ranks the first among the five most famous Imperial kilns, or the official kilns in the Northern SongDynasty. Each Ru Imperial kiln porcelain is a rare treasure. The Ru kiln porcelains handed down are absolutely rare around the world --- not more than 150 pieces in total, of which, the sky blue ones of which there are only five pieces in total, are the most precious. This one is the sole sky blue, incised swan-neck vase in the world. It is the sole object acquired by excavation; the most rare in the world; and without equal in the whole world. And it is also one of the Nine Representative Treasures of Henan Museum
