This listing is for a set of wonderfully hand-painted Chinese porcelain tile set. The tiles depicts four warriors sailing into battle, weapons drawn, as well as another scene depicting warriors in battle. Detail in the art work is very good and is unsigned, this is a stunning piece of early 1900’s Chinese art history.
The plaques have been reframed at some stage, but are in fantastic condition.
“Chinese ceramics show a continuous development since pre-dynastic times and are one of the most significant forms of Chinese art and ceramics globally. The first pottery was made during the Palaeolithic era. Chinese ceramics range from construction materials such as bricks and tiles, to hand-built pottery vessels fired in bonfires or kilns, to the sophisticated Chinese porcelain wares made for the imperial court and for export. “
