Introduction We are delighted to present an online catalogue of lamps from our collection. With a mix of both antique and modern vases, each of these lamps has been selected for its fine quality and decorative appeal. The ceramic lamps presented in the following pages reflect a wide variety of cultures and styles. We have highlighted a group of Chinese blue and white vases as well as a group of Japanese Imari vases with an introductory history of these two distinct styles. In addition to the Chinese and Japanese examples, we have a number of European vases represented in the catalogue, including a polychrome Dutch Delft vase pictured on the cover and an elegant white and gold Meissen vase shown opposite. Alongside the antique vases in our collection, we have included a selection of our modern lamps that are available as well. All of our lamps can be wired for use worldwide. A variety of card, linen or silk lampshades are available on request. We hope you will enjoy the catalogue. Perhaps you will find a lamp that will brighten your interior – please do be in touch if we can be of any assistance.

Blue and White Chinese Porcelain Blue and white decoration is synonymous with Chinese porcelain: the earliest examples of Chinese blue and white wares appeared during the Tang Dynasty in the 9th century. In the early 14th century, the Chinese potters developed fine blue and white porcelain in Jingdezhen, which has been referred to as the ‘porcelain capital’ of China. The blue and white wares of this date utilized cobalt exported from Persia in combination with the white porcelain of Chinese tradition. By the 17th century, Chinese potters were creating blue and white porcelain for export to the European markets. European collectors often mounted these pieces with silver and gold mounts as they were so highly prized. As early as the 1640s, the Dutch, producing Delftware, began to copy Chinese blue and white designs due to the popularity of this style. Chinese export blue and white porcelain remained highly valuable throughout the 18th century in Europe and led to many imitations, including the well known willow pattern made by Royal Stafford at the end of the 18th century. The designs on blue and white Chinese porcelain varied greatly. The fo dog, also known as an Imperial guardian lion, derives from Chinese Buddhist tradition that regards the lion as a symbol of protection. Another common decorative feature is the fish, which is a symbol of abundance and affluence. These symbols are often used to decorate blue and white porcelain along with abstracted foliage with a variety of flowers. Peonies, chrysanthemums, and hibiscus, amongst others, all hold special meaning in Chinese culture and can be found on blue and white vases in abundance.

Imari Vases Imari ware is a type of porcelain traditionally made in the town of Arita in Japan. Starting at the end of the 17th century, these pieces were exported to Europe by the Dutch East India Company and became fashionable. As the porcelain often left from the port of Imari, the designs took on the name of this port. Imari ware is defined by a type of Arita ware known as kinrande, which is coloured porcelain and ceramic with underglaze cobalt blue and overglaze red and gold. The designs of Imari ware ranges from foliage and flower to people, scenery, and abstract geometric patterns. Given the popularity of Imari ware in the West, European factories began imitating the style. The ceramic makers at Meissen, Chantilly, Vincennes, and Worcester all produced Imari style pieces in the 18th and 19th century.
