Chinese Qianlong Period Blue & White Clobbered Ginger Jar

Rare Chinese blue and white clobbered jar colorfully decorated with dragons, pagodas, water, mountains, trees, butterflies and flowers in iron red, green, blue, orange gold and gilding.

During the 18th & early 19th centuries, often blue and white Chinese export was sent to Holland and England to be “clobbered” or enameled with color to enhance their decorative appeal.  Colorful Imari porcelain was very popular at that time and was much more expensive than Chinese blue and white ware.   It took clever European potters to see the advantage of adding color or clobbering to the porcelain. It is an overglaze process which is refired to make the color permanent.
