A handmade fine art reproduction of a vase from The Kangxi reign (1661 -1722) of Qing Dynasty by Jingdezhen kiln

The whole Vase is simply and elegantly decorated with hand painted one hundred Chinese words ‘壽’- Longevity in English. The bottom of the vessel is marked with six Han words “大清康熙年制” stating it was originally produced in the Kangxi period in the Qing Dynasty.

The blue and white porcelain in Kangxi period has two distinct characters by comparing to the previous wares: technical simplification and decorative sophistication.

Kangxi porcelains – perhaps not surprising given the longevity of this period – are vast in range and immense in variation. Remarkable, however, is the fact that not only imperial wares are of outstanding, high quality, but that non-imperial wares are hardly distinguishable in terms of material, craftsmanship, design, painting quality and aesthetic appeal. Many styles were similarly created with and without reign marks, and many designs such as the complex figure scenes taken from history or literature, seem to be created solely for a Chinese audience, yet became particularly popular in the West. Rather than create an elite ware for court use, the Kangxi Emperor managed to raise the capacity and ability of the manufactories overall. This fits in with a man who was more passionately interested in progress than in extravagancies for his own person.
