During the Qing dynasty (1644–1911) porcelains in China were produced in record numbers for export and use at home. New palettes such as the well-known famille verte
and famille rose
were added to an already impressive repertory of shapes and glazes and themes and traditions. A detail from a painted-porcelain plate, the lovely bird and lush flowers featured on our note cube are typical of the Qianlong period with the layering of designs and dense, precise detailing.
Contains 500 notepaper sheets and 50 colored paper clips. Note cube: 3 1/4''L x 3 1/4''W x 4 1/8''H; notepaper sheets: 3'' square.
