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 kendi with bags of personality. From Fujian in Southern China it represents a group of Chinese ceramics made for export to S.E.Asia in the 16th and early 17th centuries, known as 'Swatow.' Most of the surviving pieces seem to be dishes, in either underglaze blue or enameled. Kendi appear to be uncommon.

The kendi has sagged to one side during its time in the kiln. This accidental result marks it out from all other kendi and would make it much appreciated in Japan...

An impressive Chinese Ge style glazed dish, in imitation of the classic Song ware with its 'iron wire and golden thread' crackle. The recreation of classic Song wares was popular in the Qianlong Court and many fine glazes were rediscovered during the 18th century...

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...

This is the set of photographs for the jar and cover seen on the right of the first photograph. Photographs of the other vase can be found under item #4310.

Each pot has a hardwood stand, the rims of these have shrunk over the years and now the pots don't fit too well...

A thinly potted Chinese export soft-paste porcelain saucer dish made specifically for export to the West during the Qianlong period. It is possible that this dish has been given only a coating of white firing clay, known as huashi or 'slippery-stone' rather than being true soft-paste. Both techniques were used to enable much finer painting with greater detail and on thinly made pieces it can be difficult to tell...

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 Chinese Changguan or teadust glazed double gourd vase, 18th ~ 19th century. The vase is skillfully made from fine and compact porcelain which can be seen on the wide foot-rim. The glaze is mottled and neatly finishes just above the foot with a dark brown line. Where the porcelain is exposed on the exterior it has burned to an orange colour during the firing.

Approximately 23.8 cm high...

Approximately 22 cm diameter. The dish has a small area of fritting on the rim; on the back a shallow glaze flake where the sliver of glaze has been glued into place and a further glaze flake. All noted in the photographs. No cracks...

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...

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 comprehensive description of the bourdaloue is to be found on the blog 'janeaustenworld' on ...

A CHINESE EXPORT BLUE & WHITE PLATE, KANGXI ~ YONGZHENG, 18THC.

An unusual blue & white plate decorated with willow tree and Chinese cabbage within a scrolling border. The border is very reminiscent of those found on early 18th century English silver with scallop shells joined with arabesques. Chinese porcelain made specifically for export to the West, Kangxi or early Yongzheng.

Approximately 22.9 cm diameter. The condition is very good with only a tiny nibble to the back noted...

A “CLOBBERED” KANGXI JARLET, CIRCA 1720.

This petite porcelain jarlet arrived in Europe at time when coloured ware was becoming popular and so a resourceful merchant took what was originally a blue & white jarlet and had it enamelled with the new colours. The original jar dates from the Kangxi period and exhibits a superb underglaze blue along with a very desirable design. The European enameler has even added an exotic Chinese looking mark to the base.

Approximately 7.6cm hi...
