Rare pair of Chinese export porcelain candlesticks of European silver form decorated in the Imari pattern with flowers, c. 1720, Kangxi reign, Qing dynasty, h. 17 cm, 6¾ in. 2.7037

Provenance: Benjamin F. Edwards III Collection, St. Louis, Missouri, USA, inventory no. 5411. 

Illustrated: 100 Years of Chinese Export Porcelain, by A. Varela Santos, 2014/2015, cat. 53.

Literature:

Chinese Export Porcelain, by D.F.L. Scheurleer, fig. 115 for one similar candlestick;

The Jay Dorf Collection of Chinese Export Porcelain, Christie’s sale catalogue 17th October 1966, for a similar pair decorated in opaque enamels.

 This is another European form taken from a metal, precious or not, wood or faience original which was copied to great effect in China. Of great technical difficulty to manufacture it is a testament to the virtuosity of the anonymous Chinese potter.

參考文獻:

《中國外銷瓷》,作者D.F.L. Scheurleer,見圖115一件相似燭臺;

Jay Dorf收藏中國外銷瓷》,19661017日佳士得拍賣圖錄,見一對施不透明釉近似器。

 這是被中國仿製到極致的另一歐洲器型, 取自于金屬、 (無論其貴重與否) 木材、或彩陶原器。 燒造此類器皿技術難度 極大, 是默默無聞的中國瓷工的藝術鑒賞力是一充分佐證。
