Porcelain Dressed in Gold

Jorge Welsh (ed.)

Jorge Welsh Works of Art is proud to present its annual gallery exhibition, Kinrande: Porcelain Dressed in Gold, including 48 individual pieces from this most rare of Chinese porcelain groups, a collection that has taken us over 22 years to assemble.

Named after the Japanese word for ‘gold brocade’, Kinrande wares are one of the rarest and most exquisite types of Chinese porcelain produced in Jingdezhen. These wares are distinguished by the use of gold foil designs on monochrome, mainly iron-red, grounds. Kinrande porcelain was initially made in China during the Jiajing period (1522-1566), and appeared on international markets between the second half of the 16th and early 17th centuries.

This exhibition is accompanied by a limited-edition boxed catalogue available in English and Chinese.
