Catalogue Note

Imperial kilns during the Qianlong emperor's reign (1736-1795) produced dark-blue-glazed vases in a number of shapes. The present form with the straight foot and teardrop-shaped body rising to a subtly tapered cylindrical neck is among the less common forms manufactured during that period. A closely-related vase, though slightly shorter, sold at Christie's New York, 24th March 2011, lot 1740; another, though taller than the present example, sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 8th October 2013, lot 3058; a third sold in our London rooms, 9th November 2016, lot 178.
