Republic of China (1912–1949), Gaopi Ware Underglaze Enamel Dish with Swallow and Blossom Design


A plate baked in the Gaobu kiln in Chaozhou, Guangdong Province during the Republic of China period (1912–1949). Influenced by the Japanese underglaze painting style popular during the Meiji and Taisho periods, the brightly coloured cobalt, green and pale pink glazes depict tropical scenes of the beauties in familiar nature.

The colourful underglaze ware of the Gaopi kiln was mainly exported to the South Sea countries. The localized style of painting, which has sloughed off from the supernatural view, is inherited by Taiwanese Yingge and Vietnam’s Songbe ware.

There are two hairlines, but they are in good condition.
