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").
