Late Qing Flambe Transmutation Vase (LQF071704)
19th century
Late Qing Dynasty
Porcelain with flambe transmutation glaze
Height: 35.5 cm
Diameter (at widest point): 21 cm
From an Argenteuil, France estate

A beautiful 19th century late Qing flambe vase, the glaze of a deep mysterious "jun" red that is a deep crimson at the body and flares out to streaks of purple and blue near the mouth rim. The vase is well-potted in a baluster "guanyin zun" shape with pleasing proportions. A typical feature of late Qing flambe vases are the rough foot rims: the glazes being very fluid in high temperatures, Jingdezhen potters would have to "hack" off the vessel after a firing or at the very least grind away the base, in order to remove the excess glaze pooling towards the bottom.

Condition: In excellent antique condition, with no hairlines and no repairs. Due to age, there are some scratches and wear to the glaze surface. Characteristic of late Qing flambe vases, the foot-rim and glaze is very rough at the bottom (considered a mark of authenticity, and not really a condition issue; described here for accuracy).
