A Guangcai Porcelain 'Great Fortune and Wealth' Tea Set
The theme of rooster, bok choy, flowers and plants means great fortune and good luck. In the ancient text Han Shi Waizhuan from the Eastern Han dynasty, the rooster is described as a bird of five virtues, which is well-educated, well-trained in military, righteous, faithful and courageous. The artisan used super white clay to craft the porcelain bowls. The bowls were fired at 1380°C, and hand-painted with guangcai mineral paints and traditional techniques, then refired at 810°C for three more times.
