The common collection varieties in the antique market are Qing dynasty kiln blue and white porcelain plates, and many collectors are very concerned about its market performance.
In 2002, a Tibetan friend first bought a blue and white double lion pattern plate with a diameter of 28 cm for 800 yuan, thinking that it was expensive, and then spent 200 yuan to buy a blue and white chrysanthemum pattern plate of the same size, feeling that the price was very cost-effective. After 8 years, what is the difference in the price performance of these two markets? At present, the market price of the double lion pattern market is 18,000 yuan, more than 20 times; the market price of the chrysanthemum pattern market is 2,000 yuan, only 10 times higher. Why is there such a big difference in the price movement of the two broad markets? It turned out that the Qing Dynasty kiln blue and white porcelain plate collection investment was learned.
Collection first choice “Qing Three Dynasties”
The production year of Qing dynasty kiln blue and white porcelain plates spans a large range, and collectors should choose early varieties for collection investment. From the establishment of the Qing Dynasty government in 1644 to its demise in 1911, after more than 260 years, the production of blue and white porcelain plates in the kiln has not been interrupted. The early Qing Dynasty, especially the reign of Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong (referred to as the “Three Dynasties of the Qing Dynasty”), was the last prosperous period of Chinese feudal society, economic prosperity, social wealth, the development of porcelain industry reached a new peak, the production of blue and white porcelain plates is very particular, the materials are high, the workmanship is fine, the glaze is moist, the painting is vivid and smooth, and its value is naturally high. In addition, the older the collection, the more difficult it is to pass on to the present, the less it has been handed down, and the greater the potential for appreciation.
Look at the ornaments to collect
Qing dynasty kiln blue and white porcelain plate painting patterns are diverse, it is advisable to choose varieties with fewer ornaments to invest in collection. The main painting patterns of the blue and white porcelain plates of the Qing dynasty kilns are decorated with character patterns, animal patterns, fruit and vegetable patterns, landscape patterns, floral patterns and text decorations, etc., which are very rich. These ornaments are not only a reflection of the social culture and folk customs of that era, but also the embodiment of the aesthetic and appreciation ability of people of different classes and identities. For example, at that time, officials and eunuchs and elegant people loved to choose the blue and white “a bunch of lotus” plate, because the blue flower and lotus flower are homonymous with “clean and incorruptible”, and have the meaning of being muddy and unclean; Some wealthy families like the blue-and-white dragon pattern plate and the willow double jun picture plate, hoping that their children and grandchildren will have a prosperous future and a talented family; Ordinary people mostly use blue and white glazed red fish pattern plates in the hope that the family will be rich and more than every year. Different ornamental varieties are also handed down in different amounts, such as “a bunch of lotus”, willow double juntu and other ornamental varieties have less inheritance, chrysanthemum patterns, blue and white glaze red fish patterns and other ornamental varieties have been handed down more. The market price of different ornament varieties is also quite different, and the ornamental varieties with less heirloom not only appreciate quickly and have high prices, but also have more appreciation potential, which is the reason for the large difference in price between the double lion pattern large plate and the chrysanthemum pattern large market mentioned at the beginning of this article.
Large size, high value
Qing dynasty kiln blue and white porcelain plates have large and small sizes, and it is advisable to choose varieties with large sizes for collection and investment. From the perspective of the number of days, the production of large plates was small at that time, and the larger the plate, the more difficult it was to pass it down, so the larger the size of the plate was smaller and more precious.
From the current antique market, we can often see plates with a diameter of less than 22 cm, and a full product with a diameter of more than 28 cm (an antique jargon, referring to no bumps, no punch lines, no glaze) is more difficult to see. From the perspective of market prices, the price of large size and small size plate is very different, such as the same Qing Dynasty Yongzheng blue and white “a bunch of lotus” full product phase plate, at present, the diameter of 39 cm market price is more than 200,000 yuan, diameter 28 cm is about 45,000 yuan, diameter 22 cm is only about 8,000 yuan. From the perspective of collection investment prospects, plates with large diameters will have greater appreciation potential, which collectors should pay attention to.
The collection must be remarkable
Qing dynasty kiln blue and white porcelain plates are very different, it is advisable to choose good varieties collection investment. Most of the Qing dynasty kiln blue and white porcelain plates have different degrees of damage in the process of use and circulation, some have punching or fried bottom phenomenon, some have bumping or glaze explosion phenomenon, and some have wear, etc., the real full-product photo plate is relatively rare.
The market price of a defective plate and a full-product plate is very different, and the price of a punched plate is generally only 1/5 of the price of a full-product plate, and it is difficult to sell. Therefore, collectors should avoid low prices and not pay attention to the appearance of the collection when purchasing collections, so as not to affect the investment income of the collection.
