Bronze ware is made of bronze alloy (the alloy of red copper and tin), which was born in the Bronze Age of human civilization. Bronzes have appeared all over the world, which is a symbol of world civilization. The earliest bronzes appeared 6000 years ago in the ancient Babylonian River Valley. In Sumerian civilization, the large bronze knife with lion image is the representative of early Bronze. Bronze ware was gradually replaced by iron more than 2000 years ago. Chinese bronzes are exquisitely made, enjoying a high reputation and artistic value in the world's bronzes, representing the superb technology and culture of the development of Chinese bronzes for more than 4000 years. Bronze ware is a symbol of world civilization. Chinese bronzes are exquisitely made, enjoying a high reputation and artistic value in the world's bronzes, representing the superb technology and culture of the development of Chinese bronzes for more than 4000 years. Although the price of bronzes in the domestic market is not high and the overall market has been tepid, even so, bronze collection in the collection field has always been considered as a high-quality collection that can only be played by senior collectors.
From the aspect of shape, bronze ritual ware is the most valuable collection, especially the bronze ritual ware with inscription, which is the focus of bronze collectors. Bronze ritual ware is the treasure of the inheritors of the state. It can be divided into four categories: food utensils, wine utensils, water utensils and musical instruments. For example, the chime bell of marquis Zeng Yi, which appeared in the "national treasure" last year, is an instrument in bronze ritual vessels. Its value is not only the market value, but also the historical background behind it. There are also bronze mirrors, weapons and miscellaneous items that are easy to be ignored, which may be influenced by traditional habits. Collectors tend to ignore the collection and collection of these kinds of bronzes. From the perspective of patterns, different patterns represent different social meanings, so the collection value of bronzes should also be based on these patterns. The patterns on bronzes mainly come from those unique decorative patterns in the Shang and Zhou dynasties. From Taotie, Kui dragon, Phoenix and other patterns, we can see the relationship between them and the primitive society. The patterns commonly used in bronzes are Taotie pattern, Kui dragon pattern, dragon pattern (crawling dragon pattern, rolling dragon pattern, double dragon pattern), dragon pattern, snake pattern (Pan ASPS pattern, pan insect separation pattern), bird pattern, phoenix pattern, ripple and other bronze patterns. Taotie patterns are mostly applied to the main decorative parts of the utensils. They are carved with flexible Yin lines, or raised with Yang lines. The composition is plump. Both sides of the main pattern are filled with changeable cloud and thunder patterns, which has the beauty of yin and Yang complementing each other. Taotie pattern was mainly popular in the Shang Dynasty and the early period of the Western Zhou Dynasty. It was popular again after the Eastern Zhou Dynasty, but it lost its original dominant position and ferocious color and became a gorgeous decoration. Inscriptions are also an important factor affecting the value of bronze collection. Bronze inscriptions are commonly known as gold inscriptions. There are two kinds of Inscriptions: cast and engraved. Before the Warring States period, there were many inscriptions. These inscriptions are important historical value, and the font, layout and content of the inscriptions also change with the development of the times, which is also one of the important references for the dating of bronzes. Because the bronze inscriptions can supplement and confirm the ancient history, they are precious materials for studying the ancient history, so their historical value is very high. Therefore, in the collection market, one of the important ways of making false inscriptions is to make false inscriptions. It is very important to understand the characteristics of the inscriptions in different periods for the identification of the forgeries.
The collection of bronzes does not depend on the size of the objects, but on whether there are inscriptions on the objects. Even if it's a very small miscellaneous tool, it's worth a lot of money if it has an inscription. For example, a bronze plate on display in poly museum is very small in shape, only as big as the palm of an adult man's hand, and Gaier has been lost, but this small plate is of great significance, because the plate center part has an inscription, which was written by the descendants of Dayu, clearly recording the history of Dayu's flood control for the people. Of course, the value of a piece of bronzeware is various. The collection value of bronzeware with good shape, good decoration and clear inscription is also the best. This article is a very open collection, which has a history of 3000-4000 years. It has a very high collection value.
