Kangxi porcelain

About Kangxi porcelain

Kangxi porcelain is named after the Kangxi Emperor who reigned China from 1662 to 1722. The emperor was very interested in history and culture and brought back the arts and crafts that had been declining. The Kangxi Emperor saw that production technology was a very important aspect of craftmaking so he set up his own workshops and looked into new techniques and updated the designs of the porcelain. The Kangxi porcelain is mostly blue and white but also famille verte where green is often the most dominant. Kangxi porcelain is well known for its quality, not only the imperial ware is well crafted, the commercial items that were shipped to Europe by the millions is of great quality.

Rare Kangxi porcelain is very popular among collectors of Chinese porcelain and often you can find Kangxi porcelain at antique auctions. Because of the popularity of Kangxi porcelain, there are also fakes on the market. Sometimes made in the ‘Kangxi style’ but also made to lure collectors into buying something they think is real. If you are interested in Kangxi porcelain it is a good idea to invest time to read websites and books about the porcelain and to go to museums and auctions with high quality porcelain.

What is Kangxi porcelain worth?

It is hard to put an average price on Kangxi porcelain, a genuine item like a dish can sometimes be found for $50 or less while a very rare gold-pink Imperial bowl sold for $30.4 Million at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Chinese Works of Art Spring Sale Series 2018.
