The design of butterflies and melons is seldom encountered on Chinese porcelain, found only on a few Qianlong pieces. This shaped dish I feel is from the early 19th century but the ‘orange peel’ surface of the porcelain is often found on Qianlong export pieces. Like the Qianlong painted melons these have a pronounced ‘spotting’ in either famille rose or gold enamel on the fruits. 

Approximately 20.6cm across, 6.4 cm high...

The square bowl with flaring sides and indented canted corners on a flared base. It is covered overall with a very thick opaque mushroom coloured glaze with a wonderful intentional crackle. The crackle is stained and in places exhibits the famous iron wire and golden thread effect found on the fabled Song Guan wares. This bowl dates from the 18th century, or possibly earlier...

A Japanese stoneware sake bottle, tokkuri, from the Inuyama kiln in Maruyama, Owari Province.

The kiln is noted for overglaze enamelling introduced by Dohei in 1835 and these gourd-shaped bottles decorated with maple leaves are perhaps the best known of all. I have always loved this design since obtaining a copy of Feddersen's 'Japanese Decorative Art', Faber & Faber, London,1962.

The bottle is boldly decorated with green and red leaves, the red with areas of flaking...

A Chinese double overlay snuff bottle. 19th century. An opaque white glass bottle is encased in sapphire blue glass and then encased again in white. These two layers are then cleverly carved away to leave a design of an ancient fisherman attended by his young apprentice. Double overlay bottles are uncommon.

The clear glass stopper is not original but it seems to suit the bottle.

Approximately 7.5cm high...

A rare Chinese Export 'Bourdaloue', Qianlong period, circa 1760. The item is, in fact, a chamber pot designed expressly for use by 'the fairer sex'. The incurving sides designed for comfort, bear in mind that this vessel was often used whilst standing.

The urinal was given the nickname 'Bourdaloue' after the famous Jesuit priest Louis Bourdaloue (1632-1704) whose longwinded sermons were famous...

A Chinese porcelain flambé glaze snuff bottle. 19th century. The flambé glaze is a transmutation glaze and was notoriously difficult to control in the kiln, often with the result of the glaze running off the foot onto the kiln support. This led to a ragged edge to the foot that would need to be ground smooth. This has happened here as can be seen in the photographs. Also evident are slivers of missing glaze created when the bottle was removed from the kiln support...

Fine patina. Light wear from careful use.
