17th Century Chinese Famille Verte Rose Pink & Green Ginger Jar
A Chinese Qing Dynasty vase or ginger jar with painted figural court scenes with a black underglazed Kangxi (1654-1722) mark ... moreA Chinese Qing Dynasty vase or ginger jar with painted figural court scenes with a black underglazed Kangxi (1654-1722) mark thought to be from the royal Imperial kiln. Features a Double black circle. Very Heavy. Traditionally reign marks state the dynasty and the name of the emperor for which an item was made, and were used on all ceramics made for the Emperor and his Imperial household. Wucai, meaning ‘five colors’, originally referred to porcelain decorated in a palette of five colours dating from the Ming period (1368-1642), especially during the reign of emperors Jiajing (1522-66) and Wanli (1573-1619). ‘Because blue enamel did not exist during the Ming dynasty, Wucai porcelain was made by glazing ceramic pieces after they had been fired once, with underglazed cobalt blue decoration,’ Chang notes. ‘It was then fired a second time with the overglazed decoration, which featured a variety of colours including red, green, blue, yellow and purple.’ Later in the Kangxi period, Wucai wares evolved to become what Western scholars now refer to as famille verte, French for ‘the green family’. During this period, the palette developed to include clear greens, with enamels of other colors used for decoration. Around the end of the Kangxi period, famille rose, or ‘pink family’ enamels, were introduced in China. Composed largely of opaque white and pink enamels derived from colloidal gold, introduced through the Jesuits serving at the Qing court, this new palette became very popular during the subsequent Yongzheng and Qianlong reigns. ‘The Yongzheng famille rose has a delicate and feminine quality that is unique to this period; many connoisseurs consider it to be the best of its kind,’ observes Chang. Imperial reign marks in kaishu, or regular script, began to appear regularly at the beginning of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) and continued throughout the subsequent Qing dynasty (1644-1911). You would not expect to find reign marks on pieces from earlier dynasties. The most common marks on porcelain tend to be written in underglaze blue within a double circle. Depending on the medium of the work of art, reign marks can be written in underglaze cobalt blue or in enamels over the glaze in various colors including iron-red, pale blue or black. They can also be written in gilt and can be incised or impressed. less
