The kilns that fired Longquan wares lay deep in mountainous country in southern Zhejiang Province, close to the sources of clay, glaze materials, and firewood. Remarkable human effort was required to transport the massive pieces safely to coastal ports in order to ship them to Islamic markets. Dozens of dishes of nearly this size are preserved in the Topkapi Palace Museum, Turkey.
