A CHINESE BLUE AND WHITE PORCELAIN STANDING CUP

Lot 0396 Details

Description
A Chinese Ming dynasty period blue and white porcelain stem cup. The stem cup is the same as the tall-feet bowl, that is shaped like a bowl at the top and a handle at the bottom. The tall-feet cup is also called as a handle-cup, which is beautiful inappearance, practical and convenient. In each dynasty, the tall-feet cups have their own characteristics. The flying dragon patterns depicted above rose in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) and was revived under emperor Xuanzong of the Ming Dynasty. In the heart of the cup painted with "Ming Xuande Made" in blue and white double six characters in two lines. Why the character "Virtue" is less a cross? The reason has tracked to one thousand years ago, when the "virtue" was like a polyphonic character, it is written in two ways, with the cross or not. On this point, we can be confirmed by the calligraphy masters during Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties. For example, the word "virtue" in the impereial book "University monument" by Empereor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty, now standing in the Confucius temple of the imperial college in Beijing, does not have the cross line. Another example is the word "virtue" written by Zheng Banqiao, a Qing Dynasty painter who lived at the same time as the estabishment of Quanjude, there are characters with and without the cross. This shows that in the past, both ways of writing the word "virtue" were correct.
