Lovely Chinese Porcelain Bencharong Jar, also with black enamel.
When Bencharong (Benjarong) is used to refer to porcelain it usually means a type of 18th and 19th centuries Chinese polychrome enameled ‘five colored’ wares, made in Jingdezhen to Thai (Siamese) specifications in the 18th and 19th centuries. The word derives from the Sanskrit panch rang meaning ‘five colors’ (white, black, indigo-green, yellow and red), same as the Chinese wu cai.
The most popular designs on the Bencharong were Thepphanom with Norasingha, where Norasingha was a minor Buddhist deity-part man, part lion and part deer, residing in the Himaphan forest, and Thepphanom with Garuda, a mythical royal bird.
These designs were divided by a ‘fire pattern’ on a black background, pre-coated with green. The interior usually had an opaque green with a floral border design and an overlapping lotus on the bottom.
