Jingdezhen Treasure Yingqing Porcelain Relief Teapot Beauty's Shoulder 影青浮雕美人肩壶
A one-of-a-kind treasure that represents the pinnacle of Jingdezhen's porcelain craftsmanship, incorporating the original Gaolingtu (高岭土) clay materials and stringent firing requirements, completely hand-crafted and finished at a top Jingdezhen porcelain studio. The type of porcelain used in crafting this teapot is called Ying Qing Ci, the very best authentic Jingdezhen porcelain, the pinnacle of Jingdezhen's thousand-year porcelain ware craftsmanship heritage. Gaolingtu is very fine and off white with a slightly blue undertone, and it exhibits the luminescence that is characteristic of spectacular Jingdezhen porcelain. It is very scarce nowadays and finished wares are more costly too. To be sure, the vast majority of large volume, low-quality Jingdezhen wares on the market don't incorporate Gaolingtu clay material.
Yingqing porcelain was the most desired tea ware during the Song dynasty and is referred to as the "Jade of Porcelain". Historically Yingqing porcelain has four distinctive attributes: white like jade, thin like paper, reflective like a mirror, and sounds like a bell. This piece is truly unique and exclusive to our online store.
The hand-crafted art relief on this teapot features night-blooming cereus and moon, a timeless piece and a masterpiece in its own right, simply elegant and stunning! A cereus bloom implies auspiciousness and a promising future. This teapot features a built-in strainer, is easy to pour and beautiful to behold. It stands gracefully at any tea table and is a great investment for your tea ware collection.
