The Qianlong dynasty was the heyday of the development of feudal society in the Qing Dynasty. Under the supervision of the Tao Taoguan, Jingdezhen's imperial kiln factory is large in scale, firing more than hundreds of thousands of all kinds of porcelain every year, whether it is in craftsmanship or decorative arts. The pastel is the mainstream of Qianlong colored porcelain, and both the official kiln and the folk kiln are fired in large quantities. In addition to pastels on white, there are also various pastel bottles.
Qianlong pastel has a unique feature, that is, turquoise green glaze is applied to the mouth and bottom of the utensils. The turquoise green glaze is light and lustrous, and the glazed surface is like porridge skin. Because it is a low-temperature color glaze, the glazed surface often has fine grains. In addition to the pastel paintings, paint colors, gold colors or black colors are often added, or they can be combined with blue and white and bucket colors and applied to a single device. In the decoration method, there are various colors of "lighting" pastels, such as red, yellow, blue, green, purple and various colored glazes, which can reach more than ten kinds. Qianlong pastels use the pastel powder to soften the soft texture, and use various powdered materials to imitate various crafts, which can accurately show the color and texture of the imitated objects. The main pattern is entangled branches, and the image is to transform the flowers and leaves of traditional peony flowers, treasure phase flowers or lotus flowers, like western flowers. There are also ancient figures in the decoration. The modeling techniques of Qianlong pastels are all striving for perfection, and there are very few signs of flattening or crumble. Qianlong pastel is light and beautiful, with a blue ground and good light transmission. Looking at the light, like the colorful cloud chasing the moon, looming, covered with light and fog; there is stillness in the movement, beautiful and fascinating. It can be seen from this that this pastel vase has been around for a long time and is very collectible.
