Peach-bloom glaze or apple-red (Jiangdouhong) Liuye ping was an original and major innovation of Jingdezhen ware in the Kangxi Period (1661-1722). The deep red glaze is beautifully applied all over the body, giving way to the white base layer of glaze only at the mouthrim. This small but exquisite vase shows the perfection of Liuye ping: A fine and slender boy sits on a narrow recessed base (white). It has a flared rim, medium-length neck, rounded shoulders and long tapered body that ends in a deep unglazed footring. The glaze flows perfectly to this unglazed foot and has not been ground away, which was frequently required in less well-controlled kiln conditions. The interior of the vase also has a peach bloom glaze. A six character Kangxi mark at the base dates this vase back to 18th century. Note: A custom-made stand accompanies the vase for display purposes. The legs of the stand are three geese with their long necks stretched upward. Height: 16.9 cm Condition: Excellent; just some slight rubbing to the glaze on the upper rim and the body. No cracks or chips.
