Footnotes

  • Jiang Delin, style name Wanquan, was an Yixing stoneware master from the Jiaqing to Tongzhi periods. His birth and death dates were unknown. Excavated and extant works indicated that Jiang had collaborated with Chen Mansheng to create teapots, such as the Yixing stoneware 'zhujie' vase unearthed from the tomb of Qing dyansty Wang Dianshan in Shanghai's Jinshan County in 1977. On the reverse of the cover, there is a square mark 'Wanquan' in zhuanwen; on the vase body, an inscription 'Dan Wusheng Zuo Dou Yong Xiang, Mansheng' can be found. According to tomb records, the burial occurred in 1803, the eighth year of the Jiaqing emperor's reign. Others regard Jiang Wanquan as another Yixing master of the late Qing dynasty. This perspective is subject to further examination.

    清 紫泥泥繪貼花方硯

    「蔣萬泉印」篆書方印

    硯台呈方形,硯面凸起處為硯膛,四周圍方形硯池,硯池末端兩邊有兩小孔,方便研磨後盈餘的墨汁流入一台一端的方形硯槽中,硯台腹腔中空,與位於中間的小方槽連通,設計巧妙實用。硯台唯硯膛、方槽及底部露紫砂泥胎,四壁均以綠色色泥繪飾輪廓,以黃色色泥作地色,再以紅、綠、棕色色泥貼幾何紋飾,裝飾精巧,獨具匠心。底部鈐「蔣萬泉印」篆書方印。

    蔣德林,字萬泉,清嘉慶至同治年間宜興紫砂高手,其生卒不詳。從出土及傳世作品來看,其曾與陳曼生合作製壺。如1977年上海金山縣清代王坫山墓出土「紫砂竹節壺」一把,蓋內鈐「萬泉」篆文方印,而壺身刻「單吳生作豆用享,曼生。」銘文。據墓誌記載,該墓葬時代為清嘉慶八年(1803年)。另說蔣萬泉為清晚期另一宜興名匠,存疑待考。
