  • 【Antiques】Palace Bowl (Phoenix and Flower Print) 青花鳳穿花卉紋宮碗 | Zhai JianMin 翟健民

    青花首推宣德 | 明朝是青花瓷器發展的一個鼎盛時期,無論數量還是質量都堪稱歷代之最。特別是宣德期間,青花瓷器不僅是宮廷用品,還是享譽海外的外銷品。其燒造規模之大,品種之多,技術之高超,簡直開一代未有之盛,故有『青花首推宣德』之說。 (影片原作者: 廣州前後文化) 宣德青花的特點 | 宣德青花的普遍特點是器體厚重,紋飾精密,底釉常泛青,多帶年款。『年款』是明朝制瓷興起的一種藝術形式,也就是在瓷器上印上帝王年號,多用楷書或篆書題寫。 許多人鑒定宣德青花多從年款辨別,但宣德的年款除了位置不固定以外,風格也多變。雖有一種風格尤為突出,但寫法仍有差異,若非多去實踐對比,難以總結它的特征。所以鑒定宣德青花,還是應該結合多方面的特點去分析。 比如這件大明宣德年制的『青花鳳穿花卉紋宮碗』。 宣德青花的鳳 | 從紋飾看,飛鳳昂首展翅,瀟灑自如,輕盈妙曼。纏枝花卉生機勃勃,像火焰般呼之欲出,飄逸靈動。這些勾勒渲染的技法非常精湛,線條流暢,紋路清晰,有一氣呵成之勢。 說到鳳,那還真是古代人經常用到工藝品上的意像。因為鳳凰是人們心目中的瑞鳥,雄鳳雌凰,百鳥之王。在古代,鳳凰像征著天下太平,也寄托著人們對美好、光明和幸福的向往。但是歷代的鳳,形像都不盡相同,怎樣辨別明代宣德青花上的鳳呢?還真有一個簡潔明了的方法:就是看鳳有沒有腳。 元代青花的鳳是有腳的,而且還挺長,但是宣德青花的鳳就是沒有腳的。如果看到鳳有腳,那多半不是宣德的青花瓷。 宣德年款的特征 | 再看年款,『大明宣德年制』,是風格突出的楷書寫法。這類寫法有一個很明顯的特征,就是『德』字的『四』和『心』的中間少一橫。在一千多年前,『德』字是個多寫字,可以有一橫,也可以沒有一橫。宣德時期之所以多采用沒有一橫的『德』字,據說是為了避諱,也有的說是因為大明陽氣太盛,曾發生大火,故將『德』字減為十四劃。但是終究缺乏考證,...

    Item 30-1803  These majestic bronze-mounted Sèvres porcelain urns are monumental in both size and quality, and feature the renowned manufactory’s signature deep cobalt blue glaze. Sèvres urns were made in various sizes and qualities over the years, with the finest examples dating from between 1850 and 1880. Yet even among the best examples, these urns stand apart. First, the great majority of the urns were fitted with minimum “stock” bronze. Very few boasted the handcrafted, specially-made mercury gilded bronze mounts such as those featured here. Additionally, most urns created were approximately one quarter to half the size of these monumental beauties. It is assumed by most experts that the smaller examples were sold in retail establishments, while very rare large pieces were made only f...

青花首推宣德 | 明朝是青花瓷器發展的一個鼎盛時期,無論數量還是質量都堪稱歷代之最。特別是宣德期間,青花瓷器不僅是宮廷用品,還是享譽海外的外銷品。其燒造規模之大,品種之多,技術之高超,簡直開一代未有之盛,故有『青花首推宣德』之說。 (影片原作者: 廣州前後文化) 宣德青花的特點 | 宣德青花的普遍特點是器體厚重,紋飾精密,底釉常泛青,多帶年款。『年款』是明朝制瓷興起的一種藝術形式,也就是在瓷器上印上帝王年號,多用楷書或篆書題寫。 許多人鑒定宣德青花多從年款辨別,但宣德的年款除了位置不固定以外,風格也多變。雖有一種風格尤為突出,但寫法仍有差異,若非多去實踐對比,難以總結它的特征。所以鑒定宣德青花,還是應該結合多方面的特點去分析。 比如這件大明宣德年制的『青花鳳穿花卉紋宮碗』。 宣德青花的鳳 | 從紋飾看,飛鳳昂首展翅,瀟灑自如,輕盈妙曼。纏枝花卉生機勃勃,像火焰般呼之欲出,飄逸靈動。這些勾勒渲染的技法非常精湛,線條流暢,紋路清晰,有一氣呵成之勢。 說到鳳,那還真是古代人經常用到工藝品上的意像。因為鳳凰是人們心目中的瑞鳥,雄鳳雌凰,百鳥之王。在古代,鳳凰像征著天下太平,也寄托著人們對美好、光明和幸福的向往。但是歷代的鳳,形像都不盡相同,怎樣辨別明代宣德青花上的鳳呢?還真有一個簡潔明了的方法:就是看鳳有沒有腳。 元代青花的鳳是有腳的,而且還挺長,但是宣德青花的鳳就是沒有腳的。如果看到鳳有腳,那多半不是宣德的青花瓷。 宣德年款的特征 | 再看年款,『大明宣德年制』,是風格突出的楷書寫法。這類寫法有一個很明顯的特征,就是『德』字的『四』和『心』的中間少一橫。在一千多年前,『德』字是個多寫字,可以有一橫,也可以沒有一橫。宣德時期之所以多采用沒有一橫的『德』字,據說是為了避諱,也有的說是因為大明陽氣太盛,曾發生大火,故將『德』字減為十四劃。但是終究缺乏考證,也不可妄加猜測,畢竟有一橫的『德』字,宣德也有在用。但可以確認的是,典型宣德瓷器的年款,『德』字都是少一橫的。 還有,『明』字的『日』和『月』是平拍的,最下一橫筆,其左右高低、倚斜之勢基本保持一致,正如我們常說的『日月齊明』。還有『宣』字,寶蓋下面的一橫是緊貼左邊的。最後的『製』字也有一個特點,叫『衣不過刀』,也就是『衣』字的那一橫是不過『制』字的立刀旁的。 底足聚釉 | 除了看紋飾、年款,胎釉也是一個鑒定方法。這只宮碗的胎釉肥厚滋潤,白中泛青,光澤柔和不刺眼。最明顯的是底足的聚釉,與器身的色調不甚相同,青色較深,這是標准宣德青花的一個特點。 難能可貴 | 在古董市場上,鳳穿花卉的青花宮碗數量很少,宣德的尤為難見,本品更是『選料、制樣、畫器、題款無一不精』。但它的胎比較薄,能完整保存下來的不多,所以在市場的流動中,可能十年,甚至十五年也難以出現一個。這也是宣德青花備受追崇的原因之一。 永寳齋 Official Website: http://www.chaks.com.hk/founders/ Follow 翟健民 on Weibo: http://www.weibo.com/kinmanchak?nick=翟健民&is_all=1

A blue and white palace bowl from the Chenghua period (1465-87) sold for US$18 million at a lively Sotheby's auction of Chinese ceramics and works of art in Hong Kong on Tuesday (October 8) that also saw several records broken. The bowl, bought by local Chinese ceramics dealer William Chak, is the second most expensive piece of Ming porcelain ever sold at auction. The record is held by a blue and white Meiyingtang vase sold by Sotheby's in Hong Kong for US$21,620,000 in October 2011. "Because this Chenghua palace bowl, I think this is one of the best Chenghua palace bowls in the world. One of the best. And such is so important. This bowl, the Chenghua king privately used. And this bowl, at the Ming record, already telling is making by the king, privately enjoyed. So that's the most important one thing," said Chak, adding he was pleased the bowl was staying in Hong Kong after fierce international bidding. Sotheby's Asia deputy chairman, Nicholas Chow, said Ming porcelain was still hugely in demand. "We were thrilled with the price of the palace bowl. It's the second highest price for Ming porcelain ever and it's in a field that is very, very classic. We had participation from American buyers, European bidders, and of course Asian. I think it's in a field of collection that is very international and I think that it's an extraordinary price," he said. A rare Tang dynasty (618-907) dry lacquer head of Buddha from the 90-year-old Japanese collector Sakamoto Goro broke a world record for early sculpture, fetching US$5.3 million, a million and a half over it's top estimate. "Basically it was two western, probably the two foremost western dealers in the world. It was Guiseppe Eskenazi of London versus Jim Lally of New York, and representing I suppose, a couple of different western buyers. This was a world record for early sculpture. It was extraordinary," said Chow. Sotheby's, which is celebrating 40 years in Asia, pulled out all the stops for its Autumn sale, one of two annual offerings in the territory. A Qing imperial porcelain vase broke a record for monochrome porcelain selling for $11.4 million USD, going almost ten times over its estimate. A Yongle gilt-bronze Shakyamuni Buddha from a private Italian collection broke the world auction record for a Chinese sculpture, selling for $30 million U.S. dollars far exceeding its estimate of US$6.4 million. Organisers said the buyer, Zhen Huaxing, of Zhongshan Wujuezhai Culture and Art Company had bought it to keep the artefact in China.

Outstanding Presidential Palaces In Africa ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Subscribe to our YouTube channel : https://goo.gl/oHL7nB ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ It is little wonder that, with their respective titles, the palaces of many African presidents will be garlanded with magnificent structures and beautiful scenery. 1) The Unity Palace Yaounde, Cameroon With the towering pillars that holds its walls, pleasant surroundings and verdant greenery around it, the Unity Palace is a striking work of art.

It is a historic Cairo palace which has 500 suites, and is the official residence and main office of the President of Egypt. 3) Union Buildings Pretoria, South Africa The Union Buildings form the official seat of the South African government and also house the offices of the president of South Africa.

Item 30-1803  These majestic bronze-mounted Sèvres porcelain urns are monumental in both size and quality, and feature the renowned manufactory’s signature deep cobalt blue glaze. Sèvres urns were made in various sizes and qualities over the years, with the finest examples dating from between 1850 and 1880. Yet even among the best examples, these urns stand apart. First, the great majority of the urns were fitted with minimum “stock” bronze. Very few boasted the handcrafted, specially-made mercury gilded bronze mounts such as those featured here. Additionally, most urns created were approximately one quarter to half the size of these monumental beauties. It is assumed by most experts that the smaller examples were sold in retail establishments, while very rare large pieces were made only for special commissions for elite clientele, earning them the moniker “palace urns”. Designed in the exuberant Rococo style, these baluster-form urns display hand painted panels depicting figures from Greek mythology, including Poseidon and Aphrodite, in idealistic scenes surrounded by cherubs on the front, while remarkably rendered landscapes of Greek ruins adorn the reverse. The urns’ exceptional artistry extends to the magnificent bronze ormolu mounts, on which putti support scrolling branches at the handles. Resting atop Neoclassical pillars, these urns embody the singular aesthetic of Sèvres prized porcelain. The vases bear the signature "A. Nicolas" within each painted scene. Circa 1860
