Why this is a
Masterpiece

The plate has an out-curled mouth rim, a perpendicular body and a flat bottom. On the bottom a vermilion dragon is painted, around which there are yellow and green cloud patterns. The bright-coloured painting is delicate, carrying a message of good luck. Kangxi Wucai reached the peak of Chinese traditional painted porcelains. This plate is exquisitely made hence an excellent object among the wares of Kangxi Wucai.

History of the Object
Wucai porcelain is a kind of overglaze decoration porcelain which is made by firing the already-fired plain base painted with a few colorful patterns in the kiln with 770 - 800 degrees Celsius. It features rich colors, with red, yellow, green, blue and purple as the basic. Kangxi Wucai was innovative and developed on the basis of the Wucai in the Ming Dynasty after having inherited its traditional techniques.
