The dish was made for the Japanese where such pieces were used and much appreciated in the tea ceremony, at a time when the Japanese porcelain industry was in its infancy.

A Chinese turquoise glazed meiping vase, Kangxi period, late 17th or early 18th century. The vase is thickly glazed with a finely crackled blue glaze. This glaze is more intense in reality than portrayed in my photographs. The neck has been reduced and fitted with a copper collar. The foot-rim is slightly rough as a result of adhering to the kiln support, within the foot the body has been wiped with a clear glaze.

Approximately 13.8cm high...

A very fine pair of Chinese famille rose porcelain potiches dating from the nineteenth century.

The shape of the jars is rather like 18th century Export sucriers but somewhat larger and decorated in a style more reminiscent of the Qianlong court. The enamels are thickly applied and bright...

A Chinese flambé baluster vase, 18th ~ 19th century. The copper-red glaze is a transmutation glaze that, in earlier times, was notoriously difficult to fire correctly. The deep red hue drains from the neck leaving a warm mushroom colour, the inside of the neck and within the foot-rim glazed white. There is a fine crazing to the glaze all over.

Approximately 22.4 cm high, 16.5 cm diameter. The vase is substantially potted and weighs 1457 gm...

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...
