Produced in the Kangxi period (1661-1722), this fine plate was intended for the export market and painted in the fashionable Japanese style. Jingdezhen's monopoly on porcelain production was broken in 1616 when Japanese potters at Arita figured out how to produce their own porcelain wares. These were exported to the outside world from the port at Imari, and their dramatic combination of underglaze blue with overglaze red and gold proved an enormous success...

This is a superb and rare Yaozhou ware russet porcelain vase, brown glaze over a grey-white paste, Northern China, Song or Jin dynasty, 960-1234. Russet- or persimmon-glazed wares from Yaozhou were probably first made to imitate dingyao pieces, but the yaozhouyao glaze fires with a uniquely metallic lustre, as in this example. The paste on the footring and the unglazed base has fired to a rich creamy-colour, which is quite common with these brown-glazed wares. All these pieces are rare, especia...

Inside this lovely bow, it depicts a scholar wearing high hat on a deer which is called “Lu Gao Sheng”. “Lu Gao Sheng” are phonograms of “deer”, “High, tall” and “To raise”. On the outside...
