Green celadon carp plate - goldfish design, 7"D (set of 4 plates)
Celadon refers to the pale green glaze of the ancient Chinese stoneware. Celadon originated in China, where porcelains and ceramics were first invented, but it is produced throughout Asia. Each country has its own unique shade, due to slight differences in the clays and materials used to create the distinguishing green color. While ancient porcelains found in China are unglazed, celadon is perhaps the earliest example of glazed porcelain in the world. It was first used for cups and bowls in very utilitarian manner, but soon lent itself to decoration.
The double carp design embossed on our celadon dinnerware is a derivation of one of the first known decorative patterns on Chinese porcelain ware. The carp is a symbol of prosperity in China. As porcelain once exemplified both high technology and affluence, it is not surprising that the carp should adorn it.
As celadon is technically stoneware, a dense clay ceramic, it is durable as well as dishwasher and microwave safe. Reorient has a full line of Celadon dinnerware that is sourced in northern China from some of the oldest operating factories that still produce Celadon as it was a hundred years ago, hand worked with wood and coal fired kilns. The character and quality of each item is consistent with 19th century craftsmanship and will lend the mystique of old world Asia to your dinner setting.
