A Japanese 'mixed metal' cylindrical caddy, Meiji. The body is copper sheet which is cleverly formed to impersonate a sewn seam as is often found on folk craft boxes made from wood veneer.

On the front of the caddy can be found a scene depicted in different metals of geese flying over the sea with Mt. Fuji in the background.

The caddy is unsigned.

Approximately 11 cm high, 9.1 cm diameter. Generally in good condition with only light wear from careful use...

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...

A fine and unusual Japanese porcelain vase, Meiji, 19th century. The gourd-shaped vase is carefully made with evidence of fine paring of the unfired porcelain to perfect the form. The spiraling enamel decoration mimics the style of the Kyoto potters, in particular Ninsei. The vase is unsigned.

Approximately 34.3 cm high. Fine condition with only some rubbing of the gilding on the tassels...

The dish dates from the beginning of the 18th century and is typical of wares exported to the West where they were considered to be very exotic. The back is decorated with sprays of flowering prunus and within the foot-rim can be found three spur marks.

Approximately 21.7 cm diameter...

SOLD
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. Often associated with 18th century soft-paste are fine lines of craquelure in the ...

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. There has been a break in the mouth-rim a...

A Japanese Imari barber's bowl, circa 1690 ~ 1730. Also known as a 'bleeding' bowl after the then popular medical procedure of letting blood to relieve symptoms. Incidentally, barbers offered both services at the time. These bowls were made to order in Arita and were for export to the West. The rim has two holes, pierced before firing, to allow the bowl to be hung on the wall when not in use.

A very similar bowl but lacking the green enamel is illustrated in Shibata, No. 2646. ...

13 cm x 12.9 cm x 13.2 cm. Overall the condition is good with only a couple of small chips to the rim and a couple of tiny flakes on one face. The lacquer has signs of age and would benefit from a light clean.

A Japanese Imari jug, early 18th century. This jug was made in Arita specifically for export to the West, the shape after a contemporary Delft pottery sample. The clear glaze has a blue-green tinge though not strong enough perhaps, to describe as celadon. The handle has a small hole, pierced before firing, to allow the fixture of a hinged silver lid if required when the jug arrived in Europe.

Approximately 15.8 cm high. Fine condition.

Please study the photographs. ...

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. There are three tiny nibbles to the interior of the mouth-rim otherwise no damage or restoratio...
