[HobbyShow] Royal Doulton bone china & porcelain collection

(2021-02-10 22:24:57) 下一个

In the mid-18th century, English potters had not succeeded in making hard-paste porcelain (as made in East Asia and Meissen porcelain) but found bone ash a useful addition to their soft-paste porcelain mixtures, giving strength. This became standard at the Bow porcelain factory in London (operating from around 1747), and spread to some other English factories. 

Developed by English potter Josiah Spode, bone china is known for its high levels of whiteness and translucency, and very high mechanical strength and chip resistance.

Bone china is almost the surrogate of English china.

This collection is not really for myself but I contributed to a big part of it , pay... ...哭

英国瓷器公司Royal Daulton的瓷偶是很多瓷器收藏爱好者心爱之物, Every bone chine figure was modeled from a real person.

工艺精湛, 人物生动形象, 很多经典人物都有故事, 每个人物都有自字的名字. 历史上英国的瓷艺家在瓷土中加入动物骨粉成分使得瓷器的toughness大增, 瓷器可以做的很薄, 颜色更纯净,所以英国瓷有个别名叫骨瓷, bone china. 鲜艳华丽的人物造型甚至是彼时女孩心目中的偶像, 那个年代的芭比娃娃, 作为自己的梦想而持有一生.

Here are a few from the collection.

诗人Rose Fyleman的一首诗: The Balloon Man

Lyrics generated from Rose Fyleman's poem " The Balloon Man" by the Big shot & Yihuajiemu

He always comes on market days,
holds balloons a lovely bunch
And in the market square he stays,
never seems to think of lunch.

red and purple, blue and green,
And when it's a sunny day
Tho' carts and people get between
You see them shining far away.

some are big and some are small,
tied together with a string,
And if there is a wind at all
They tug and tug like anything.

Some day perhaps he'll let them go
we shall see them sailing high,
And stand and watch them from below -
They'd look pretty in the sky !

HE always comes on market days,
holds balloons a lovely bunch
And in the market square he stays,
never seems to think of lunch.

 

The moods and thoughts of man are revolving just as steadily and incessantly as nature’s. Nothing must be postponed. Take time by the forelock. Now or never! You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this, or the like of this.

“This curious world we inhabit is more wonderful than convenient; more beautiful than it is useful; it is more to be admired and enjoyed than used.”

THIS DATE, FROM HENRY DAVID THOREAU'S JOURNAL
