Yue ware kilns hold a prestigious place in Chinese ceramic history. Located in Zhejiang province, the kilns produced the earliest green-glazed high-fired ceramics in the Tang dynasty. These wares were admired technically fro their hardness and aesthetically for their shapes and colouring, qualities without precedent in China or elsewhere. The Yue ware tradition was continued at the Longquan kilns.
