Having another small batch of vintage porcelain plates for cleaning has always been a pleasure any collector would vouch. It has always been the hunting, selecting, cleaning and cataloguing that provides all the fun. Plates that had been left untouched for the past 40 years in some corners of a building are always filled with dirt and lined with thicker corrugated cards. They were easily cleaned up after some soaking in water. All specks and clean after a quick bath and wash.
Price Per piece: RM80
Type: Vintage 1970's medium size plates with floral motif and yellow background. Made in Jingdezhen, China mainly for the export market. Markings can be checked here.

Same as batch P025, they were cleaned up and turned out nicely without any chips or minor breakages. There must be little secrets in selecting dirt covered vintages and one has to take some risk.

Type: Chinese Tea Cups in Sunflower shape with Ru Kiln Powdered Green Crackled Glaze.Made in Taiwan.
Dimensions: H4cm x D7cm x Wt.70gm x Capacity 50ml
Condition: All New without any stain or dirt.
Comments: This cup is also made from the Ru Kiln type of glaze which I have commented in the previous 2 Gaiwans. They are just so simple and elegant to use in your tea drinking sessions. The natural crackled glaze may develop into beautiful crackled veins after some tea drinking sessions which made it very personal and seasoned to anyone who owns it. Just enjoy the simple pleasure.
