In early 2021, a second-hand enthusiast picked up an attractive, antique-looking, blue-and-white Chinese porcelain bowl for a measly $35 at a house clearance in the USA. The buyer felt like he’d stumbled on something special; it was a rare Ming dynasty piece with an estimated value of between $300,00 – $500,000.
Olympia Mayfair experts have studied to acquire in-depth knowledge of the centuries-old practice of Chinese ceramics production.
We often hear Chinese porcelain fetching record prices–whether from as far back as the Qing dynasty or closer to today.
In 2010, a London woman was clearing out her late sister’s relatively modest home when she stumbled across an 18th-century Chinese vase stowed away in the attic. It ended up selling for a record-breaking $83 million to a Chinese buyer.
Chinese porcelain production began in the area that China occupies today in the Han dynasty–206 BC to 220 AD. Imperial production didn’t slow until the beginning of the 20th century, when the last Chinese dynasty, the Qing, ended in 1912.
Antique Chinese pottery is distinguished by a potter’s and dynasty or emperor marks. Chinese porcelain was (and still is in some areas) made entirely by hand in small family-run workshops. While it was made for the general population, specific kilns were nominated “royal kilns,” and they made ceramic vases, bowls, and more for the ruling class of the era.
Contact us if you need advice on any Chinese artefacts, want to uncover the dynasty’s name and its emperor’s activities, or want to know when the item was made and its true value.
Unfortunately, Qing dynasty ceramic forgeries are widespread and often challenging for a novice to detect.
