public_access_description
Blue-and-white ware was only a small part of China's ceramic output by the 1820s. The introduction of a fresh range of enamel colours in the 18th century had gradually reduced its popularity. This is an example of high-quality Daoguang period 'official ware', and it is painted in a clear, strong cobalt blue.The scene depicted contains a rock with plants that represent longevity: the plum, the pine and the bamboo. Together they are known by the Chinese as the Three Friends of Winter. The sprigs of fungus also symbolise longevity.
