Need Advice - Qianjiang Porcelain
by John WU
I am new to porcelain collection.
For some reasons, I am very attracted to Qianjiang porcelain. I know that Qianjiang ceramics painting is a term used to describe a type of overglaze enameled ware which was very popular during the Late Qing/Early Republican Period.
I would appreciate someone familiar with Qianjiang porcelain can advise me the following:
- is it worth (in terms of value) keeping Qianjiang porcelain as it is is typically defined as vintage rather than antique?
- how do we assess a good piece of Qianjiang porcelain if I couldn't afford pieces by accomplished artists?
It seems to me that porcelain from the Ming and Qing era are very popular amongst collectors (such as blue&white, famille verte, famille rose etc).
Advice will be appreciated. Thanks.
