Gulbenkian - Chinese porcelain

 

From the Ming Dynasty, "blue and white" style, first quarter of 17th century.  The stuff that caused a flurry of fashionable alternatives in Europe.

You can definitely appreciate just why the Europeans adopted this cool style of crockery Tom
Tom Wilson: Indeed - Delft and Wedgwood would not exist without them!

It is lovely stuff, Tom...the Chinese really knew their porcelain trade!
Tom Wilson: Indeed they did! And CG knew what he wanted!
Blue and white is popular still.
Tom Wilson: Indeed it is - one sees it everywhere, although not of this quality smile
Lovely chine isn't it.
Tom Wilson: I wouldn't mind a cupboard full, Brian.
You still see a lot of it. Mind you this little lot would cost a bit more
Tom Wilson: I can't imagine how much, Bill - I imagine thousands for any one piece.
Ming dynasty sounds very expensive Tom.
Tom Wilson: Very much so, I'd guess!
there is nothing i love more than white and blue pottery and ceramic products...
seeing these from the 17th century makes it even more special Tom...
thanks for sharing this one with me....petersmile
They spawned a lot of imitators, I'll bet...
