Pair of Large Beijing Cloisonne Baluster

District New Territories
Posted 2/7/2016
Contact: Whatsapp/Call 67079653
Price: 11000 HKD


Downsizing and therefore forced to sell an excellent pair of hand-made large Beijing cloisonne baluster shaped floral vases which has been in my collection for over 20 years. They were bought in Hong Kong when the best quality cloisonne products were not sold in China but exported for better prices. You can rarely find such excellent quality in tourist spots in China and HK now both because of increased costs and decreasing no. of skilled craftsman in this trade. Even if you go to a cloisonne factory in Beijing (which I have visited), you will find the price of good quality products alarmingly high. I am selling the pair for $11,000, less than a third of its current market price.

The two large vases are identical in appearance and of the same size. They measure 20 inches tall, 7 inches wide at the mouth, 6 inches at the base and 8 inches in the middle (all measurements approximate). Each come with a carved wooden stand of 2 and a half inches tall.

The condition of the vases is excellent with no dents, cracks, enamel loss or restoration evidence. The enamel is perfect and free from chips. Copper metal rims at top and bottom of vases have nice aged patina too. Cannot find any comparable products in HK but products of lower quality but higher prices are seen at China Arts and Craft and Yue Hwa Emporium. Please go and have a look before considering my offer.

If you like to view this pair of vases before making a purchase decision, please call/whatsapp me at 67079653. I will also be listing an extra large cloisonne plate later. Thanks for viewing.

PS-- Just in case you have no idea how cloisonne is made, below is a general introduction.

According to China Daily, Cloisonné, or enamel art, is internationally considered a traditional Chinese art form, but according to Mao Jinfu, manager of the Beijing Enamel Factory, the materials were brought from Europe in the 1300s.
Cloisonné is French for "cell", and refers to the technique of applying thin wires to form raised barriers on different areas of enamel on top of the original metal form. An ancient metalworking technique, it is a multi-step process used to produce jewelry, vases, and other decorative items. Objects produced by this process are also called cloisonné.
The earliest datable Chinese pieces are from the reign of the Xuande Emperor (1425-35), which however show a full use of Chinese styles suggesting considerable experience in the technique. It was initially regarded with suspicion by Chinese connoisseurs because it was foreign and appealed to feminine tastes.
However by the beginning of the 18th century, the Kangxi Emperor had a cloisonné workshop among the many Imperial factories. The most elaborate and highly-valued Chinese pieces are from the early Ming Dynasty, especially the reigns of the Xuande Emperor and Jingtai Emperor (1450-57), although 19th century or modern pieces are far more common. The Chinese industry seems to have benefited from a number of skilled Byzantine refugees fleeing the Fall of Constantinople in 1453. Known as Jingtailan in Chinese, and named after Jingtai Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, cloisonné was considered a perfect combination of copperware and porcelain, both of which have been very popular in China.
In the Beijing Enamel Factory, it can take up to six months or even a year to create one piece, though the average is about three months. The art form is used to create a wide variety of works, from chopsticks to vases, and the price varies just as greatly. A pair of chopsticks can be found for as little as 50 yuan, or a little more than US$7, while the most expensive vase in the factory is worth millions.
The making of Jingtailan requires rather elaborate and complicated processes: base-hammering, copper-strip inlay, soldering, enamel-filling, enamel-firing, polishing and gilding. The following steps are usually followed;
Step 1 Creation of shape from brass or copper
Step 2 Shaping and soldering on of enamel cell shapes in patterns covering surface. The wires used are made of copper.
Step 3 Initial fill of cells with multiple colors of enamel, fire in kiln. Each step is created by an artisan in that expertise.
Step 4 When firing, the enamel contracts, so more color fill is needed - 3 to 4 times until the surface is even, smooth and without depressions. The enamel here still looks glossy.
Step 5 Sand and polish surface so level and uniform. Cells and enamel should look melded into one. You'll notice the finish is dull at this point. It still must be polished.
Step 6 Polish. and coat with electro-plating medium as prep for metallic accenting. Electroplate outer portion of cells and any other desired areas.
Step 7 Final polishing and cleaning. A bead can take 5 hours from start to finish. Something like a vessel can take a week.
The skill and workmanship have been handed down from the Ming Dynasty. Since the founding of new China, quite a number of new varieties have been created. It enjoys a high reputation both at home and abroad with most of its products for export.
Three styles of cloisonné are most often seen: concave, convex, and flat. The finishing method determines this final appearance. With concave cloisonné the cloisons are not completely filled. Capillary action causes the enamel surface to curve up against the cloisonné wire when the enamel is molten, producing a concave appearance. Convex cloisonné is produced by overfilling each cloison, at the last firing. This gives each color area the appearance of slightly rounded mounds. Flat cloisonné is the most common. After all the cloisons are filled the enamel is ground down to a smooth surface with lapidary equipment, using the same techniques as are used for polishing cabochon stones. The top of the cloisonné wire is polished so it is flush with the enamel and has a bright luster. Some cloisonné enamel is electroplated with a thin film of gold, which will not tarnish as silver does.
All the products are beautiful and elegant in molding, brilliant and dazzling in colors and splendid and graceful in design. It is a famous local handicraft in the Beijing region.

Antique Chinese Embroidery 清明上河图

District New Territories
Posted 2/7/2016
Contact: Whatsapp/Call 67079653
Price: 7500 HKD


Downsizing and therefore selling a colorful master piece of Chinese hand-stitched embroidery, ALONG THE RIVER DURING THE CHING MING FESTIVAL (known in Chinese as 《清明上河图》) which was crafted at least over 10 years back. Its frame is made of black hard wood with gold color inlay and measures 18 inches by 63 inches. The same piece of a lower quality but a few inches shorter both sides is now selling at Yue Hwa Chinese Emporium above Jordan MTR Station for $15500. Please have a look there. I am now putting this up for sale at less than half of that price, $7500.


This is not a painting! This is not a tapestry! This is a piece of 100% silk handmade embroidery work made upon part of the ALONG THE RIVER DURING THE CHING MING FESTIVAL original painting (known in Chinese as 《清明上河图》) now stored in the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City of Beijing. The original painting was the work of Song Dynasty artist, Zhang Zeduan. The painting captures the daily life of people from the Song period at the capital, Pien Jing (today's Kaifeng).
The theme celebrates Ching Ming Festival (Qingming Festival). The entire piece was painted in hand scroll format and the content reveals the lifestyle of all stratum of the society (from rich to poor) as well as different economic activities in rural areas and the city. It offers glimpse of the customs and architecture during the period.

This is an exemplary and most famed piece of Chinese painting in China history. It was a pride of the personal imperial collections of emperors for centuries. Due to its high artistic reputation, it has inspired many works of art that revived and updated the style of the original.This embroidery piece is one of them. A computer generated 3D animated version was for a three-month period in the World Expo 2010 presented at the China Pavilion, drawing queues up to several hours with a reservation. The same version was later displayed in HK drawing a crowd of over one million visitors. So if you want to keep just one piece of Chinese artifact, this is it.

If you like to view this excellent piece of artifact before making a purchase decision, please call/whatsapp me at 67079653. Thanks for viewing.
