Footnotes

  • Underglaze blue and overglazed enameled decorations achieved high levels of virtuosity in Jingdezhen not just during the Republic but also during the early years of the People's Republic after the Communist victory in 1949. See the Famille-Rose and Peaches vase by Wang Bu offered at Christies London in their sale of 7 November 2017 as lot 262, where it was suggested that such high quality works were partly encouraged by a Sino-German and Sino-Czech partnership that flourished during a brief period of detente between the Chinese and Soviet spheres of influence during the 1950s.
