A fabulous Guanyao double-gourd vase dating to the later half of the Qing dyn., 18th/19th c.
Dimensions are 6.5" tall
Condition: Very fine condition. No injuries

The quality of this vase is impressive, very refined and can confidently be said to be 'imperial' quality. The glaze color is an unctuous, uniform, soft sky-blue glaze that stops just short of the footrim. The glaze exhibits a fine golden spider-web crackle. The footrim is unglazed, cut and polished as all higher quality and especially imperial ware of this period, and exhibits a dark blackish purple color. A true museum quality piece.
