A beautiful Chinese Peking overlay glass meiping vase from the 19th century Qing Dynasty. Excellent carving by hand.
"Chinese Overlay Carved Glass, also known as Peking Glass (Tao Liao Ping in Chinese), is a traditional form of art that starts with a one-color glass base, dipped into contrasting colored glass one layer at a time. The artist then carves away portions of the overlaid glass to reveal layers of other colors underneath, following certain designs. It is a lengthy and tedious process that is time consuming and labor intensive. However, the result is exquisite and exotic, unlike carved glass from other countries and regions."
Size: 5 7/8" H.
Good condition with no crack nor repair.
