Another post about my visit to Tiger Hill, which took place this time last year. One of the traditional buildings at the Tiger Hill Penjing Garden was a penjing museum. All information there was in Chinese, so I concentrated on examining antique containers displayed there. Images below show some of them.
Below is the legend to the images above:
A – Blue and white porcelain, size 41 x 27 x 15 cm, late Qing Dynasty (1644-1912).
B – Coarse clay container, size 37 x 55 x 18 cm, Ming (1368–1644) or early Qing Dynasty.
C – River clay container, 49 x 25 x 15 cm, mid Qing Dynasty.
D – Yuxing ‘purple sand’ ware with landscape painted in black pigment, size 48 x 32 x 18 cm, late Qing Dynasty.
E – No information, probably Yuxing ware, unusual form and decoration.
F – Yuxing ‘purple sand’ ware with painting and calligraphy, possibly by artist Lu Hui Li (1851-1920), size 24 x 24 x 36 cm.
G – Yellow clay container, probably Yuxing ware, size 18 x 15.8 cm, late Qing Dynasty.
H – Yuxing ‘purple sand’ ware, unusual bucket-shaped container, size 20 x 20 x 18.5 cm, mid Qing Dynasty (displayed as a photograph).
I – Container with ink painting style decoration, size 26.5 x 16.5 x 14 cm, mid Qing Dynasty (displayed as a photograph).
Apart from that, an antique penjing tool displayed there made me realize how basic the tools were in the olden days (see images below).
I don't visit penjing museums very often, so it was fun.
