Blue and White

There is a true allure of collecting blue and white pottery. I believe it is that some people like myself…just love it. I love the design, the color, and the patterns.

Many have traveled across oceans; traded for a meal; served our family’s and Royalty. As our lives change; then suddenly we are able to appreciate the culture behind the art of the potter, instead of the pot being merely useful.

Old plates, vases and teapots, I think, have a secret history; I can imagine dinners with a silent backstory of conversations over tea and cake. Presentation is important. Make a fuss! It’s a shows love and respect to your family and your guests.

If you are going to collect blue and white; Buy pre-loved and or pre-owned. It’s keeps old pots out of landfills; recycle and reuse. We have to be mindful of our environment too.

My eyes have been caught up by the simple beauty of every day common pottery made remarkable by the colour blue and the brilliance of shape.

This is my table and I’m just getting started.

Old Ming Pot

Could it be Ming?

I am to believe I may have an antique Chinese koi Bowl from the Ming Period in my procession.

It is bronze and is a cloisonné enamel bowl. The bowl measures 11.2 inches across at its widest and 3.4 inches high.

The bowl is bronze with beautiful multi color enameling throughout the piece. The iron work and rims have a dark patina or color which is all original to the piece. Incredible find.

What makes this bowl very special is that the outside and interior of the bowl are decorated with fine and enamelings and there is a scroll border along the top rim.

The bronze is glazed in a dark blue green with gilded scrolls, koi and lotus flowers.

The center bowl is in excellent condition, as is the stand.

If you look at the many photographs for more on the look and condition as they are an important part of the description.

The Zhengde Emperor (Chinese: 正德; pinyin: Zhèngdé) was the Ming dynasty Emperor of China between 1505–1521.

Reign: 19 June 1505 – 20 April 15

What do you think?

Is it Ming…or just an old Ming Pot.
