A large Chinese famille rose 'mille fleur' vase, the base with a Qianlong mark. The decoration is to a high standard and the shape of the vase is typical Qianlong but it is my opinion that the vase dates from the 19th century. Apart from that it is in very poor condition and is in need of a good restorer. The damage was committed a very long time ago, the glue used to rebuild looks like an animal glue that would dissolve if soaked in water for a day or two...

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 cloisonné bowl decorated with blossom against a black ground. The bowl is enamel on copper, quite substantially made and so fairly heavy. It sounds like a bell when tapped on the side, quite sonorous. The colours are typical of the first half of the 19th century as is the key-fret ground.

Approximately 21.5 cm diameter, weighs 906 gm. In good condition generally with a little water staining/calcium on the interior...

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...

A very striking pair of ferocious Shekwan stoneware lion-dogs, from southern China, 19th century. Each dog is of traditional form with finely combed coats, their manes highlighted with iron-oxide and further pearl-like jewels created with thick white glaze. The dogs are a male and female pair as can be seen.

Approximately 19cm high, 17cm long. The lions present very well but have an number of condition issues, mostly small chips to extremities. The male figure has had his front legs...

A Chinese glass snuff bottle made to imitate agate. Though simple in appearance these bottles were very difficult to make as the glass had to be first striated and then given darker patches whilst molten, before blowing to form the bottle. A genuine old bottle. The base has an old collectors label mistakenly identifying the bottle as agate.

Approximately 5.8 cm high. Fine condition. No stopper.

Please study the photographs.

The baluster vases profusely decorated with scrolling foliage against a yellow background. The interiors counter-enamelled with white. Bats can also be found amongst the flowers.

Approximately 22.7cm high. Both in perfect condition but noted inside the mouth of one vase there is a small area of roughness with some carbon inclusions and a very fine stress line, all seen in the detail photographs.

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. Perfect condition with no frits, chips, cracks or rest...

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. Fine condition.

Please study the photographs.

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. There are also two minuscule...
