Description

Brinjal bowl with wooden stand, Kangxi (1662-1722), on a short foot with everted rim, the biscuit body decorated inside and out with ‘egg and spinach’ glazes of green brown and yellow, the base with central mark within double circle in underglaze blue.

Dimensions:

Height: 9cm. (3 1/2in.); diameter: 19.5cm. (7 3/4in.)

Notes:
The egg and spinach, or 'susancai' glaze (literally translating to ‘soft three colour’ glaze) is strikingly similar to the sancai glaze developed during the Tang dynasty (618-907), made with lead bases coloured respectively with copper, iron and cobalt oxide. The resemblance between Susancai wares and the earlier Tang ceramic tradition made them very popular during the Kangxi period, as they corresponded with the antiquarian tastes of the Emperor.
