The identification of blue-and-white porcelain, and the identification of ancient porcelain by glaze color.
The last article said the main elements of ancient porcelain identification, and the importance of learning historical knowledge, this article will talk about the basic knowledge of the identification of blue and white porcelain, as well as through porcelain glaze to the generation, and determine the general identity of porcelain.Blue and white porcelain’s reputation has always been very loud, even the singer Jay Chou also wrote a blue and white porcelain as the name of the song, for a time across the river.Although blue-and-white porcelain three characters like thunder, but really know how many people blue-and-white porcelain?Those who are willing to take time to systematize their learning about blue-and-white porcelain are few and far between. There are few who know more about the identification of blue-and-white porcelain, or who know more about the identification of blue-and-white porcelain. What we have to do is to let more people know about Chinese traditional culture. You don’t need everyone to be an expert on ancient porcelain, but the basics should be understood.
Blue-and-white porcelain existed in the Tang Dynasty, but the production technique was not mature enough.The basic form of the blue-and-white porcelain in Song Dynasty can be recognized, but because of the lack of attention of the rulers of Song Dynasty, it was difficult to break through the shackles and reach a higher realm.It may be that there were five famous kilns in the Song Dynasty, all of which could ring from home and abroad.In addition to Song Huizong’s own character, he preferred elegant porcelain, the pursuit of natural beauty, the color of those things do not like, this person’s preference directly affected the whole country’s appreciation of porcelain, This is why the Song Dynasty blue-and-white porcelain did not develop.
The most prosperous period of blue-and-white porcelain was in the Yuan Dynasty, the so-called Yuan Qing Hua.The Yuan Dynasty’s import and export trade is relatively hot, coupled with the export of blue-and-white porcelain to the country’s great profits, the emperor thinks that this is more suitable than other business home, so increased the production and export of blue-and-white porcelain.Then in Jingdezhen built China’s first ever porcelain manufacturing management department, the Floating Beam Ceramics Bureau.The main responsibility of this department is to supervise the manufacture of porcelain, which also makes Jingdezhen’s view of China’s porcelain capital more deeply in the hearts of the people.The decision also made China’s blue-and-white porcelain manufacturing industry more prosperous in the Yuan Dynasty, but also gave the country a greater advantage in foreign trade at that time.
The above talk about the two historical background of blue and white porcelain, because the appraisal must understand the historical background of that time, whether you are engaged in collection, or ordinary collectors, the study of historical knowledge should not stop.The porcelain of Yuan Qing Hua has always been very popular among collectors. We should identify the blue and white porcelain and distinguish it from the blue and white porcelain. First of all, we should look at the thickness of the glaze on the blue and white porcelain and whether there is a feeling of fat on the surface of the glaze.Excellent Yuanqinghua is an imported green material, called Su Ma Liqing, also known as Su Bo Ni Qing, this kind of color from the Arab, to the Ming Dynasty because of the change in the way of transportation, the name also changed to Hui Qing, in fact, both are the same kind of color, is called Su Qing.
Su Qing color is thicker, and after burning a little iron spots, its porcelain tyre also has some special.Most of the body of Yuan Qing Hua is not light, large objects made, in the bottom of the blue and white instrument rarely do not crack, although its tire fine and white, but the body and enamel at the intersection, often see a light red.So combine the above points, if the blue and white porcelain of Yuan Dynasty, glaze surface does not have the performance of luster oil moisten, and the tire also is not detailed enough, and grow dark, also do not have light red at the junction of the body and enamel, so the Tibetan friends must be careful and vigilant, This artifact is probably not the true Yuan Qing Hua, we must learn in the process of their own knowledge a little bit with the elimination method to verify, although this can not be certain, but the joy of identification is also contained in it.
The glaze of porcelain always changes with the change of the times, we can also identify the ancient porcelain through glaze color, the porcelain before the Northern Song Dynasty, when the glaze is used is lime glaze, this glaze is calculated at that time is quite good, but compared with the later, there is no comparability, Because the vitreous glaze itself and the porcelain tire union degree is not good, so this kind of glaze is easy to fall off, and often glaze is very thin.This is also the knowledge point that appraises this period porcelain, once the porcelain that violates this kind of cognition appears, must pay attention to, lest suffer loss when collecting appraisal.In the identification of part of the Tang Dynasty colored glaze, we value the glaze color is not mobile appearance, to see whether the color and color because of the flow of each other, it is worth mentioning the identification of the early Tang Dynasty porcelain, It is important to note that the glaze of the porcelain during this period was easy to fall off and was accompanied by a very small crack, which we can also call an opening, but the cracking is very subtle and we need to observe with a magnifying glass. This allows for a clearer appreciation of the beauty of the crack.To sum up, if in the identification of appreciation to encounter a distance, you can see the crack of the Tang Dynasty porcelain, then the conclusion of the appraisal is self-evident.Finally, thank you for your love and support for this article.
