Qing Hua Porcelain Beads

1.00

Qing Hua translates to "Blue Flowers." Blue and white decoration first became used in Chinese porcelain in the 14th century after cobalt pigment for the deep blue color began to be imported from Persia. Decoration based on sinuous plant forms was most common and widely exported. This inspired imitative wares in Islamic ceramics and later European earthenware such as Delftware. Beads are formed from porcelain, then dried and hand decorated with refined cobalt pigment mixed with water applied using a long thin brush, coated with a clear glaze and fired at high temperature. These beads date to the 1970's. Size 1/2" diameter round. Each bead features a lotus flower and crane floating on the water. each is unique having slight differences in the hand painting.
