FINE ASIAN COLLECTIBLE CHUN PORCELAIN  

Porcelain is an art of early Chinese invention and occupies an esteemed place in the World. Chun Porcelain in Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279) is regarded as the Classic craft due to its beauty and elegance.  

Chun porcelain is famous for its amazing change of color during the process of firing in kilns. Beginning in the Tang Dynasty and thriving in the Song Dynasty, it experienced a long history of over 1700 years, covering Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasty till nowadays, during which its glorious beauty has always been cherished, especially since the Song Dynasty when Chun Porcelains were possessed exclusively by the royal family as rare curios, the collection of which by civilians was prohibited, thus the saying had it that “Gold is of high price while Chun Porcelain is priceless”.  

Chun Porcelains were never carried out of the royal court until the Qing Dynasty. Emperor Xuanzong of the Tang Dynasty ordered that “Chun Porcelains not be buried with the dead” since they were to be handed down for generations of the royal family, thus accounting for its rare appearance among cultural relics. Although they were collected by several world famous museums, the amount is tiny.  

The most amazing character of Chun Porcelain lies in the color change during the firing in Kiln.   All of our chun vases are described as red agate in color and are reproductions of the designs of the long ago era.. They have an exquisite rich purplish color tone suitable for a royal family. Chun Porcelains are considered of the highest value in any collection.  

A Ding is an ancient Chinese vessel with legs, a lid and two handles opposite each other. They were made in two shapes with round vessels having three legs and rectangular ones four. Dings were originally made of ceramic materials then later, at the time of the Shang Dynasty (1600-1046 BCE), cast in bronze. This is the period to which the oldest examples of dings date back. Inscriptions found on dings and zhongs are used to study bronzeware script. They were used for cooking, storage and the preparation of ritual offerings to ancestors. In Chinese history and culture, possession of one or more ancient dings is often associated with power and dominion over the land. Therefore, the ding is often used as an implicit symbolism for power. The term "inquiring of the ding" is often used interchangeably with the quest for power.
