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 and the fragment has been glued back into place, this could be easily improved with the use of modern adhesives. There is a tiny surface flake missing from this old repair, please study the photographs. The base has been neatly drilled for a lamp base.

Please study the photographs.
