Antique Chinese ca 1600-1640 C Porcelain China Plate Bamboo Clouds Kosometsuke

About

A very nice Plate. Early 17th century. Bamboo and clouds. Rare plate! 1-11-19-1-1 Symbolism: Clouds are considered lucky and so feature heavily in Chinese pictures and symbolism. This is most likely down to the obvious connection that clouds bring the much needed rain to water the crops. Dragons are often shown playing in the clouds as dragons are the masters of water and rain. A picture of bats flying among clouds is a wish for good fortune. Clouds of five colors represent the five blessings of life. Clouds are considered the union of yin and yang because they are a fusion of the elements of water and air, sky and earth. From this idea clouds can symbolize making love as the union of male and female. Source: Stallard, R. Chinasage: All about China. Retrieved from Bamboo - Zhu - longevity. Never loosing its leafs, bamboo is a symbol of old age, endurance and modesty. Bamboo and plums together represent man and wife. Bamboo, pine and plum tree seen together are the "Three Friends of the Winter". Source: Nilson, J. Gotheborg Antique Chinese and Japanese Porcelain Collectors' Help and Info Page.
