A CHINESE FAMILLE ROSE'HUNTING' CUP. Decorated with shaped panels enclosing hunting scenes with European figures. Enamelling style was encouraged by the Kangxi emperor's liking for painted enamels on copper. A workshop set up within the Forbidden City made use of an imported crimson-pink enamel derived from gold, and an opaque white, which together facilitated an entire range of new soft and shaded tints.
Manchu imperial taste is reflected in the creation for the court of porcelain bowls with flowers depicted on brilliantly coloured grounds, which continued to be made in successive reigns. The use of coloured grounds combined with finely painted designs remained a feature of court wares of the Qianlong and later periods.
Decorated wares were made for export to the West, including vases, figure models and table wares. Some were shaped or decorated to order with armorial and other designs. You will be happy with the extra care packaging Without extra charges.
