This is an overglaze porcelain which uses the
red-figure technique.
The fine-line red drawing requiresthe most meticulous technique, which involves painting layered dots and
lines with red glaze and gold.
The design is so precise that it is hard to believe
it was painted entirely by hand; these pieces are
truly a wonder to behold.

Size: W42.7cm x H9cm.
