The Mysterious Value of Enamel Porcelain

Enamel porcelain began in the late Kangxi period and reached its peak from the Yongzheng period to the Qianlong period. However, the enamel porcelain of the Yongzheng period has the highest level and the most beautiful craftsmanship. During the Qianlong period, it gradually turned to pastel, so the enamel color ended in the late Qianlong period. At the same time, there were some porcelains whose glazes coexisted with enamel glaze and pastel. This is enamelware in the transition period. Do you say it is enamel, it has pastel, do you say it is pastel, it has enamel glaze, but the level of porcelain art is pretty high.

The production of enamel porcelain is made by the best plain white porcelain fired in Jingdezhen, sent to the palace, and then baked with enamel glaze painted in the palace. The painting craftsmanship is extremely high, and the processing level is strictly controlled. If there is any defect, it will be broken immediately. Since the enamel porcelain is specially used for the appreciation of the imperial family of Gongyan, and cannot be lost to the outside world, the quantity is very small. Few collectors can see such rare items, so it is generally difficult to distinguish the difference between enamel and pastel.

The Qianlong enamel color porcelain is the most exquisite pinnacle of the three dynasties of Kang, Yong and Qian in the Qing Dynasty. So far, various replicas of Qianlong ladies' garden jars are still widely loved and collected by collectors around the world.

Porcelain body painting enamel is the most distinctive among the royal family's own porcelain in Qing Dynasty, and the most exquisite colored porcelain among the over glaze colored porcelain. From the strong and solemn color of Kangxi to the light and simple elegance of Yongzheng, to the sophisticated and complicated elegance of Qianlong, enamel, this foreign-flavored color material, has been brought into full play on porcelain. Concentrating on the western charm, it paints the nobility and glory of the royal status.
