Katalognotizen

It is extremely rare to find a flambé vase of this form, although one companion piece, also of this size, is in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Geng Baochang, ed., Gugong Bowuyuan cang Qingdai yuyao ciqi [Porcelains from the Qing dynasty imperial kilns in the Palace Museum collection], Beijing, 2005, vol. I, part 2, pl. 139 (fig. 1).

The Beijing Palace Museum also owns two other vases of this form, but differently glazed, one with guan-type glaze, the other with a celadon glaze and relief decoration, both illustrated in Kangxi, Yongzheng, Qianlong. Qing Porcelain from the Palace Museum Collection, Hong Kong, 1989, p. 249, pl. 78, and p. 276, pl. 105. A line drawing of this form is included among Yongzheng vase shapes in Geng Baochang, Ming Qing ciqi jianding [Appraisal of Ming and Qing porcelain], Hong Kong, 1993, p. 236, fig. 403: 6.
