Chinese Blue And White Ware Glazed Porcelain Baluster Vase Dragon Pottery Kangxi
Auctions is pleased to offer a gorgeous Chinese blue and white wares glazed porcelain baluster-form Vase with dragon motif handles, and landscape imagery. White porcelain decorated with blue painted under the glaze is among the most famous of all Chinese porcelain. Under-glaze blue had been used in the Middle East at least as early as the 9th century. The envy of potters and collectors in Europe and the Middle East, Chinese blue-and-white porcelain owed its excellence to the fine clay available to the Chinese as well as to their high-temperature kilns and the cobalt pigment they used to produce the brilliant hues. Classic shaped vase lend themselves to a wide array of decorative blue and white glazed treatment, including depictions of dragons, carp, landscapes, and floral motifs.
This lovely example features dragon motif handles, and a traditional Chinese pastoral landscape. It measures 5.25 inches in width by 4.5 inches in depth by 7.5 inches in height (13.3 cm by 11.4 cm by 19.0 cm). The bottom shows the mark.
"Da Qing Kangxi Nian Zhi". The vase shows wear consistent with use, including scuffs, rubbing, tiny glaze imperfections and a few stains, but generally is in very good condition. A fine collectors piece for anyone interested in Chinese porcelain.
