late 19th century Guangxu period,
Qing dynasty Porcelain with transmutation flambé glaze
Height: 35.3 cm / 13.9 in
From a New York area estate
A 19th c Guangxu mark and period tianqiupin vase with transmutation flambé glaze, of a striking mottled red-blue-purple coloring, which Jingdezhen potters achieved through mixing colloidal copper, iron, or other metallic materials into suffusions breaking up the glaze surface. Monochrome flambé pieces were general left with plain biscuit vases, so it is highly rare that this particular piece is mark and period.
Condition: faint 4 cm hairline to neck, age wear and surface scratches to glaze, foot typically rough / chipped.
