A Biscuit Twin Figure Group, China Kangxi

Price: Price on request

Offered by Kollenburg Antiquairs BV




This group of two sages is made in ‘email sur biscuit’ technique. Unglazed clay figures were baked in a very hot kiln. The figures were fully, or often partially, decorated immediately after they were taken from the kiln. This differs from the Famille Verte decoration that was applied to a glazed surface. The email sur biscuit technique was particularly used for figurines, not to blur the fine modelling of the facial expression.
