 In the past, rare treasures like these can only be found in the royal family, the museum of the Imperial Palace and the five major museums. Now they are made available to esteemed collectors like you.

  The bluish and copper-coloured porcelains had witnessed the rise and fall of emperors Yong Le, Hong Wu, Yong Zheng and Qian Long. Their brilliant blue and copper-red are full of oriental charms with flowers of the four seasons, the blossoming spring, the interplay of fruits, pine, bamboo and plums.  They are the favourite of the Emperors during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, as well as many collectors. These are indeed extremely beautiful pieces of art and the most important national treasure of China in the past millenium.

  The rarity and the everlasting lustre of gold are so alluring that rules of the ages loved to have their portraits cast in gold.

  Each display stand is beautifully moulded from a single piece of high quality, crystal clear acrylic. This base allows the art pieces to be displayed individually, or in a set of ten. They can be housed in a display cabinet, or in the living room. The entire set is like a mobile display window, beautifully stand.

  The unique color of 'Qing Hua' (green petal) porcelain is due to the use of cobalt and the high temperature glazing process. The design is first painted in China using cobalt oxide. It is then given a clear glaze, and heated to a high temperature (1280.C). The red color of 'You Li Hong' (reddish in the glaze) porcelain comes from the copper used, and it uses the same high temperature glazing process similar to that of cobalt. The difference is that copper needs to be heated in a reductive environment to obtain its red color. As such, it is even more difficult to obtain the unique reddish colour.
