Hand Painted Jingdezhen Chinese Porcelain
Uniquely hand-thrown and hand-decorated Jingdezhen porcelain, once prized by the Chinese imperial courts, are now available from Silk Road Collection.
Silk Road Collection partnered with small family artisan businesses from Jingdezhen to offer this unique collection. Each piece is hand-formed, kiln fired, and hand-painted – producing a one-of-a-kind, world-class treasure.
The city and region of Jingdezhen, China (also known as Ching-te Chen, China) has been known as the “Porcelain Capital of China” for over 1,700 years, originating during the Han Dynasty. Beginning in 1004, it was decreed that Chinese imperial porcelain would be made in Jingde Zhen.
In London in 2005, a Jingdezhen blue and white porcelain jar from the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368) sold for over $34 Million – the highest price achieved by a piece of porcelain in the history of all porcelain auctions.
Although Jingdezhen is the home of 9 of the 26 Masters of Art and Craft of China, the highest national accolade generally reserved for the decorators, the Jingdezhen craftsmen throwers are really the unsung heroes and heroines.
