FREE SHIPPING on all Avala International, Inc. Table Lamps! See Shipping and Returns for more details.
Hand painted Chinese Ming-style blue and white porcelain table lamp with a ginger jar body is decorated with two dragons amidst clouds and flames in pursuit of flaming pearls, between a band of ocean waves below and a Greek key border above. Comes on your choice of an acrylic or wood base and includes a drum shade with a diameter of 18" with your color choice of white, cream, or tan.
The heaped and piled decoration of the ginger jar was common in the early Ming dynasty. During the 14-15th century, there was a tendency of cobalt decoration to be so heavily applied that it would break through the glaze and create dark patches of pure cobalt. These patches on the surface of the glaze would present dark, violet-like blackish spots because of the high pigment concentration, or due to impurities in the cobalt.
Today this heaping and piling technique can be found on some of our porcelain reproductions with underglaze blue decoration to recreate this authentic style and period of the early Ming dynasty.
Handmade and hand decorated, all lamps are made to order. If purchasing a pair, please order them at the same time so we can ensure a close match.
Measurements are approximate.
