China Travel guide — Identification of porcelain

Generally speaking, mainly from identification of porcelain-type, decoration, child glaze, models and other aspects.
– Type, counterfeiting focus on the modeling objects Guzhuo, city, Cuben, beautiful, refined, flowery different style research, detailed analysis and comparison to determine its evolution law. Just take the example Yuhu Spring bottles, since the late Qing Dynasty and the Song Dynasty in Pioneer, and expression have produced, and the style is a change. Qing Emperor Yongzheng, as prescribed by the Xuande imitation blue-and-white bottles Yuhu spring, although production Seiko, but the rest home Regardless of whether only the subtle differences in shape can be a slight inkling. In addition to the overall style, different artifacts, but also through the mouth, abdominal, at the end of stems, ears, neck, flow, in which porcelain to be internal, and other local observation, look at the similarities and differences of the times. If regular futzing Ancient Porcelain and measurement of a device location, thickness and weight, size memorize well, the identification work very good.

Ornamentation, the same shape, with obvious characteristics of the times. Whether subjects, or decorative approach to technology, different periods are different manifestations of ornamentation, and a broken porcelain and wrongs of the powerful basis. For example, the early Ming-Yong Xuan Liu Qing porcelain in the halo, such as casual and concave Bangen unique phenomenon, and future generations of imitation goods are not exact reproduction of the Qing Emperor Yongzheng imitation Yong Xuan, common blue-and-white-T to increase Dianran deliberate imitation effect than Xuanjing , but different cobalt material, it is impossible to overcome the shortcomings of floating color.

Also Chenghua color patterns in the bucket “Yinmian spend no, no leaf-side”; painting figures Yiwen not exaggerating, all exterior, such as the Shan Yi. These delicate characteristics of the times, were often overlooked by generations counterfeiting. As for the application of the evolution of color, such as the color of Chenghua bucket unique Cha Shih purple and black color (black color draw contour lines should not be as early as the first Ching Tak); Ming Dynasty and early Qing Dynasty are deep red color red Zaopi ; Ming Dynasty Green significantly more yellow-green color; pastel Kangxi was only in the late; must have such knowledge. In addition, decoration design and the performance of the style of writing, is particularly noteworthy. If imitation after pre-enameled, pastel, the multicolored, fighting artifacts such as color, Yunbi often significantly restrained, naive, infrequent, Lag broken, unclear or pictorial level, there are no dynamic of Health too delicate ornamentation, but would also cause us suspected.

Fetal glaze, for fetal bone, enamel for clothing. Identification of aggravation, can be free from foot-glaze the start, pay attention to the fetal soil Amoy pure refining careful with the extent of sintering. Times are different ways of Amoy Lian, Qing Ming Dynasty than before, in, child-bearing impurities in the soil for more. Such as the famous sand-yong declared the end, revealed that the fetal form of metal oxidation natural dark brown-red, or Firestone; imitation before the Qing Dynasty, in matrix, but due to the Amoy Lian too small, no oxidation spots such as Counterfeiting fatal flaws. Another carcass Ming Ying-ray, significantly more than red meat; Chenghua matrix that significant teeth white and translucent white powder. And the Qing Dynasty and was significantly Jingbaise imitation goods. Qing Emperor Kangxi Citai of pure, delicate, hard, for the early end of the Qing dynasty and not imitation goods, and many Japanese imitation Chinese Ming and Qing porcelain, ceramic sintering aggravation of the extent of excessive, that Qingkou, audible-Vietnam, on the Bixiao imitation goods, also a defect. As for the identification of glazed, the main attention should be observed thickness of the enamel, the luster of the old and new, enamel layer thickness, as well as the size and density bubble level. For example, the Ming Dynasty porcelain glazed fighters have varying degrees of Jingbaise, full-body-glazed and glazed many inconsistencies; that early glazed often colorless film opened and the natural reduction glaze; Ming Dynasty Xuande of orange peel glaze, and Qing Emperor Yongzheng and the late Qing Dynasty, the Republic of China after the imitation of a small wave profile between, with subtle differences; Qing Emperor Kangxi flu closely with glazed porcelain, a hard-Qingyou, pulp white glaze, and had a bubble phenomenon. All have their typical characteristics of the times, seen through the most convincing counterfeit goods.

Another from the glazed look at the old and new luster, many authors deliberately mystifying imitation, imitation goods will be for the old glazed: landfill, polishing, medicine Waterloo, tea boiled, pulp powered, and even a little break loss to show-unearthed. Then these natural luster to the old, that is no Ancient Porcelain the years, the natural formation of the “cakes light” phenomenon.
Finally, paragraph know, the history is different. Experience and knowledge of the different styles, from the study can start writing and then genuine porcelain, know each other, the combination of physical, a review of anti-font structure, arranged in the form of inscribed the site, as well as the color of the word, such as deep shades. In addition, attention should be paid to the same period summed up the early, middle and late stage, know the different changes in the law.

In short, the authenticity of identification porcelain, the above conditions are indispensable. At the same time, but also the Caomujiebing, all of the chaos and artifacts seen speculation. To raise the level of identification, first of all, should see more authentic, followed may also elect for the typical pseudo-fakes, after repeated comparison, we tried to figure out and learn from that experience. So, the authenticity of the porcelain, in order to determine the insight.
