Chinese export porcelain dinner services and powder blue vases at TEFAF Maastricht 2018

Jorge Welsh Works of Art is bringing a group of rare Chinese export porcelain and Japanese namban works of art, resulting from the cultural encounters between East and West, from the 16th to the 18th century.

Highlights include: a salt cellar from the Ming dynasty, Wanli period (1573-1619), one of the earliest examples of Chinese porcelains with a distinctly European shape and function; a group of eight massive powder blue “soldier” vases and covers, from the Qianlong period (1736-1795), testimonials of the impressive technical achievements by the potters at the kilns in Jingdezhen at that time; a very large dinner service from the Qianlong period; and a 16th century Japanese namban oratory lacquered in black which holds an oil on copper image of the Holy Family, after a painting by Antonio Allegri da Correggio (1489-1534), commonly known as 'The Holy Family of the Cradle'.

Each object exhibited at Jorge Welsh Works of Art stand is accompanied by an illustrated description, academic discussion, condition and related bibliography.  Additionally, all catalogues and books published by Jorge Welsh Research&Publishing may be consulted and purchased at the stand.

We look forward to your visit!
