Product Information
The time-honoured perfume is a volatile solution that requires special containers. Perfume was known as “rose water” in Tang Dynasty and contained in glass bottles. In the latter half of the 19th century, the development of perfume industry advanced with synthetic ingredients in fragrances. Porcelain is of similar nature with glass and hence suitable for storage of perfume, but more popular because of the sophistication represented by different glazes and coloured decorations.
 
Porcelain perfume bottles were in great demand in France – the world’s perfume capital. However expensive Chinese porcelain was not affordable to everyone. Samson Ceramics therefore imitated the Chinese guangcai style perfume bottles to cater to the market. These pieces were manufactured by Samson Ceramics with a crest symbol as the motif. The coat-of-arms is a unique tradition in Europe, usually as a special symbol for nobility, families, and organisations. This perfume bottle was painted with such to as a special identification of personal property.
香水的歷史悠久,作為揮發性溶液,需要用特殊的器皿裝盛。中國唐朝時香水被稱為「薔薇水」,要用琉璃瓶來裝。十九世紀下半葉起,人工合成香料的出現使得香水行業進一步發展。瓷器與玻璃屬性相近,適合用於裝盛香水,而且瓷器的各種釉、彩裝飾顯得更加高貴,所以瓷器香水瓶盛行一時。
 
法國被譽為世界香水之都,瓷器香水瓶需求量很大,但並非每一個人都能使用價格昂貴的中國瓷器,所以法國Samson瓷廠為了迎合市場,仿製中國廣彩形制的香水瓶。本品即是其製品,主要紋飾為徽章。徽章在歐洲有獨特的傳統,一般是貴族、家族、團體的特殊標誌。此香水瓶繪製徽章紋飾,顯示出身份的特殊,以及標識個人財產。
