Jingdezhen Deep Red Glaze Porcelain Jihong Gaiwan Set Hand-crafted 景德镇祭红盖碗组
Enjoy your tea in style with this deep red glaze porcelain gaiwan, hand-crafted from a well- respected studio (Wen Xin Se) in Jingdezhen, the porcelain capital of the world. This beloved traditional deep red glaze called Ji Hong (祭红), is one type of Jingdezhen's traditional single-color glazing styles. Not all red glaze porcelain wares are created equal. There are many mass-produced or lower-cost thinly layered red glaze teawares on the market made of chemical glazing materials. One needs to be especially discerning when choosing these types of teawares. This gaiwan set used the local authentic glazing material which results in a thick and deep glaze, with a more saturated color and a naturally radiant finish.
Red is a favorite color in Chinese tradition as it represents happiness, warmth and prosperity. This gaiwan set stands out at any tea table and makes your tea life more enjoyable.
Sold as a set, includes one gaiwan and four teacups.
Gaiwan: 170ml / 5.75oz.
Chicken heart cup: 70ml / 2.4oz
