The collection of ceramic water cups has become a hot spot of everyone's attention. But how to identify it among the numerous porcelain collections? For the collection of porcelain, three principles must be grasped - true, refined and new. Just enough time.
Often many collectors have little knowledge of porcelain and use the wrong method of "estimation + statistics" to collect. It is recommended that collectors must have a bottom line in their hearts and do enough work to accumulate knowledge. For example, most of the porcelain after the Ming Dynasty was unearthed. The key to looking at the porcelain of this era depends on whether there are unearthed traces. Another example is that although there were porcelain in China during the Shang and Zhou dynasties, the real value of porcelain began in the late Tang Dynasty. The situation of "green in the south and white in the north", that is, celadon in the south and white porcelain in the north, is closely related to the green mountains and green waters in the south and the snow-capped living scenery in the north.
Refinement is exquisite. Ceramic Cups Each porcelain represents its social culture, art, religion and other aspects. To sum up the history, we should use the aesthetics in line with the time to identify the porcelain. Such as Tang's "fat", Song's "show" and so on.
Brand new. The new here does not mean the length of time since the collection is now, but that the condition of the collection should be complete and free of defects. Porcelain is fragile, but the porcelain pieces have not been melted for thousands of years, so the residual porcelain and porcelain pieces exist in the world like a sea of smoke. But it is precisely because the porcelain is fragile, there are very few intact ancient porcelain. If you want to find the perfect quality ceramic cup, the financial resources it pays are beyond the reach of ordinary enthusiasts. In fact, if you take a step back and let go of the main purpose of "relying on its appreciation to make money in the future", you can receive many ancient porcelains that are a little "sick" but are also antiques, and have the same history, aesthetics and appreciation value without paying much financial resources. "Reading ten times is worse than seeing real ware once." If you want to know porcelain, you must start with damaged porcelain. The fragments and residual porcelain of ancient porcelain are the best specimens for learning and researching ancient porcelain. Generally speaking, the authenticity rate of disabled ancient porcelain is very high. In fact, collecting disabled ancient porcelain can also preserve and appreciate its value. If the ceramic cups can obtain porcelain with extremely high research and artistic value in the process of collection, or can be used as a hard-to-find tool to fill the gap of dating or kiln data, it is very likely to continue to appreciate, and if such damage is If the remnant is better repaired, its appreciation rate will be even more impressive.
