A jar made in Eastern Wu dating to the Three Kingdoms period. Beginnings and founding[ edit ] Before the dynasty of Eastern Wu was established, the territory was defended by the Sun clan in the Battle of Red Cliffs. Towards the end of the Han dynasty , Sun Ce , the eldest son of the warlord Sun Jian , and his followers borrowed troops from the warlord Yuan Shu and embarked on a series of military conquests in the Jiangdong and Wu regions between and , seizing several territories previously occupied by warlords such as Liu Yao , Yan Baihu and Wang Lang.

Sun Ce broke off relations with Yuan Shu around after the latter declared himself emperor — an act deemed as treason against Emperor Xian , the figurehead ruler of the Han dynasty. Sun Ce was assassinated in the summer of and was succeeded by his younger brother, Sun Quan. Sun Quan, like his elder brother, also paid nominal allegiance to Emperor Xian while maintaining autonomous rule over the Wu territories. Sun Quan and Liu Bei maintained their alliance against Cao Cao after the battle for the next ten years or so, despite having some territorial disputes over Jing Province.

After that, the boundaries of Sun Quan’s domain extended from beyond the Jiangdong region to include the southern part of Jing Province, which covered roughly present-day Hunan and parts of Hubei. A year later, Liu Bei declared himself emperor and founded the state of Shu Han. However, Liu Bei suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Sun Quan’s general Lu Xun and was forced to retreat to Baidicheng , where he died a year later.

Sun Quan declared independence from Wei in , but continued to rule as “King of Wu” until , when he declared himself “Emperor of Wu”. His legitimacy was recognised by Shu. Sun Quan’s reign[ edit ] Sun Quan ruled for over 30 years and his long reign resulted in stability in southern China.

Think he landed it while at William Morris. The interview is also a bit a bit sad, though. He’s been through some very difficult times personally, and he had a crazy ex-wife who pretty much ruined his life. To his great credit, he raised his two sons completely on his own. I had no idea she had a successful dance and legitimate film career prior to Deep Throat.

Modern lustreware[ edit ] Lustreware vase by Clement fr: Massier , circa Metallic lustre of another sort produced English lustreware, which imparts to a piece of pottery the appearance of an object of silver, gold or copper. Silver lustre employed the new metal platinum , whose chemical properties were analyzed towards the end of the 18th century, John Hancock of Hanley invented the application of a platinum technique, and “put it in practice at Mr Spode’s manufactory , for Messrs.

Daniels and Brown”, [12] about Very dilute amounts of powdered gold or platinum were dissolved in aqua regia [13] and added to spirits of tar for platinum and a mixture of turpentine, flowers of sulfur and linseed oil for gold. The mixture was applied to the glazed ware and fired in an enameling kiln, depositing a thin film of platinum or gold.

Depending on the concentration of gold in the lustring compound and the under slip on which it was applied, a range of colours could be achieved, from pale rose and lavender, to copper and gold. The gold lustre could be painted or stenciled on the ware, or it could be applied in the resist technique, in which the background was solidly lustred, and the design remained in the body color.


Mason’s Ironstone First sold in the Regency period as a robust alternative to porcelain, Mason’s Ironstone China soon won customers with its attractive enamelled decoration, and is still widely appreciated today. A great variety of patterns appeared on Mason’s Ironstone including blue and white in the Chinese style. Most, though, drew on the Japanese tradition and were rendered in a sparkling palette of luminous enamel colours over a natural white ground. Mason’s Ironstone, a strong, hardwearing stoneware that imitated the shapes and decoration of 18thcentury porcelain, was developed in the early 19th century by Miles Mason, a Staffordshire porcelain dealer and manufacturer.

Although it was a stoneware, it became the ‘household china’ of the aspiring middle classes who could not afford porcelain for everyday use.

Numerous native groups still persisted in some traditional lifeways, but incorporated elements of European culture, such as guns and clothing. Prickly pear cactus with ripe fruits, or tunas. The plant was gathered seasonally by natives of the lower coastal area and throughout south Texas. Image courtesy Alston Thoms. With bow and arrow ready, a Karankawa man in a dugout canoe watches for passing fish off the Texas coast.

Peoples of the Central Coast The central stretch of the Texas coastal shores and inland grassy plains was the domain of the Karankawa, the overarching name given to at least five distinct groups of native peoples who shared a common language and culture—the Carancaguases, Cocos, Cujanes, Guapites Coapites , and Capoques.

During the 16th and 17th centuries, these names were recorded, with numerous variations in spelling, by Cabeza de Vaca and other Europeans who encountered them as they traveled through the region. Farther inland lived the Mariames and other small groups whose names and cultures largely have been lost to history. Karankawa Historic maps depict the central coastal region and part of the upper coast, extending from Corpus Christi Bay to Galveston Bay, as the home of Wandering Tribes, and this aptly describes the Karankawa and many other groups, as well.

In a long-established and successful adaptive pattern—perhaps extending back some 3, years in time—Karankawa groups migrated seasonally from the mainland area to the coastal bluffs and barrier islands as resources became available. This mobile lifestyle was accomplished in part through use of dugout canoes in which fishermen plied the bays and estuaries and ventured inland along rivers and streams. Crudely built but sometimes large, some vessels reportedly accommodated entire families and their possessions in moving between camps.

Each year, during the fall and winter months, groups of Karankawa familes gathered together in large fishing camps along the coast to harvest a variety of fish and shellfish, make tools, and other perform maintenance tasks. Their temprary homes were huts of thin poles, brush, and hide which could be easily packed and moved to the next camp.

Your guide to antique pottery marks, porcelain marks and china marks Dating Wade Marks Keys to Dating Wade pottery and identifying Wade Marks Wade is historically famous for the introduction of the very collectible Wade Whimsies and the, almost as well known but not as popular today, Wade Gurgle Jugs and Decanters.

Young George was only 2 years old when his older sister Daisy, died in leaving George an only child.

Welcome to the Gotheborg. The field of Asian Ceramics collecting is a challenging one. Not the least due to the large number of terms of various origins, problem compounded by a variety of spellings and transcriptions. Many terms in particular regarding porcelain exported to the west are made up by collectors and dealers over the last century, and are not recognized or even understood in China. When possible I have tried to address this by cross referencing both terms and explain where the understanding differ.

Names, meanings and categories also change depending on new discoveries, which might not be as helpful as it might seem. Too myopic classifications might just complicate matters. Here I try to go back to the roots and explain why an older but somewhat incorrect name might still be more helpful than a modern but archaeologically correct name. Many names and terms that are Chinese in origin have been transcribed in western characters.

In old books this was often done by a system called Wade-Giles Peking, Ching-te-chen, Chien-lung , while all modern books today use a system called Pinjin Beijing, Jingdezhen, Qianlong.
