Beautifully-sculpted lacquer plates

[ From: Jason Jia | Published: 2008-07-08 Views: 1450 | Booked times: 54 ]

¡°Mainstream lacquer sculpture¡± is a treasure of traditional arts and crafts in Minnan of southern China, where it has enjoyed popularity over the past three hundred years. It combines the essences of the elegance of Jingdezhen porcelain, the charm of Fuzhou bodiless lacquer, and the splendor of Beijing cloisonn¨¦. Gold and silver-plated, its image is splendid and quite worthy of collection and appreciation.

 

On the first floor of Baigong Handicraft Museum, I discovered a shop selling mainstream lacquer ware. The shelves facing entrance show a variety of sculpted lacquer plates. Each of the 8 cm diameter plates is mounted on a black wooden pedestal, and elaborately carved with red, beautiful lacquer patterns. You may choose from golden dragon or phoenix. Each one cost RMB 780.

 

Besides lacquer ware, the shop also carries red porcelain vases as well as commemorative coins for 2008, the Year of the Mouse and the Beijing Olympic Games.

 

What I appreciated

Exquisite lacquer ware, commemorative coins

 

What customers appreciate

Fine lacquer plates, good workmanship
