Jingdezhen Treasure Blue and White Porcelain Ice Plum Blossom Gaiwan Teacup Set
A one-of-a-kind treasure that represents the pinnacle of Jingdezhen's porcelain craftsmanship, incorporating high quality raw materials and stringent firing requirements, and masterfully designed and finished at a top local art studio. This piece is completely handcrafted using the Kangxi era of Qing dynasty's "ice blossom" painting style, crafted with meticulous detail and aesthetics. It is simply a magnificent artwork and exclusive to our online store.
The plum blossom has been a timeless subject in Chinese literature and art for centuries, especially favored by ancient intellectuals and scholars as a metaphor for themselves. Each piece of this set features distinctly full white plum blossoms against a contrasting field of deep blue. The plum blossoms are painted with five petals, along with hardy layered branches and buds, depicting a vivid image of a plum blossom in the snow. One can imagine the subtle fragrance floating in the air. The aesthetics and the level of painting detail is amazing. While each piece has its own merit and function, the whole set together makes for even a more stunning display at any tea table. This set will surely make your tea ritual more enjoyable as well as a great investment for many years to come.
The outer rim of the plate is also painted with a flower motif for decoration. It can also be used as a regular serving plate or simply as a display.
