A Chinese vase of double gourd shape, covered with a cobalt blue monochrome glaze, decorated with three precious objects, and dating from the Kangxi period. The decoration, which is under the glaze, appears to have been drawn through the cobalt blue. It is therefore possible that the vase was first covered with cobalt blue, the decoration drawn, and the whole then covered with another layer of glaze. An unusual and subtle form of decoration. Height 12.8cm (5").

 
There was one vase sold at Christie's London as part of the E.T. Hall collection of Chinese monochrome porcelains which appears to have a similar form of decoration (part of lot 159).
 
Date: Kangxi (1662-1722).
 
Condition:
 
There is restoration to the top of the neck of this vase. Otherwise no other damage. There is a small amount of surface scratching, but no more than is usual with vases of this age. The overspraying at the top of the neck, and the over-painting to the inside at the top of the neck, could be re-done in a far more inconspicuous manner.

Price: SOLD
