One of the rarest copper red vases of the 18th century, even rarer than the Langyao copper reds. This particular glaze technique is described by S.W. Bushell as being (Copper Souffle) a glaze that had been quickly stirred to create micro bubbles and applied by brush, instead of hand dipped. The end resulted in a deep texture to the glaze, showing a highly dense bubble structure that creates a unique feel and look. Please refer to Vermeer and Griggs collection No. 322 at for an identical glaze effect on a smaller cylindrical vase dated to the Kangxi period (also see last photo). This is actually a very rare opportunity to own one of the rarest examples of a genuine and perfect 18th century bottle vase. In excellent condition, this beauty measures 9 inches high X 5.5" diameter.
