The swelling form of the present vase accentuates the dramatic effect of the darker pools of glaze in the carved recesses of the body that contrast with the light-green raised surfaces. Meiping vases similarly decorated with cartouches between borders include one carved with scenes of peacocks amongst flowers, bordered by a flower scroll and ruyi band at the shoulder and foot, included in the Oriental Ceramic Society exhibition Celadon Wares, London, 1947, cat. no. 164, and sold in our London rooms, 12th July 1960, lot 151; another, moulded and carved with panels of fruits and flowers between a lozenge thread pattern at the neck and petals at the foot and flanked with mask handles, from the Lindberg collection, sold in our London rooms, 12th December 1978, lot 181; and a hexagonal meiping carved with fruit and flowers between flower sprays and stiff leaves, from the Kanagawa Prefectural Museum, illustrated in Mayuyama. Seventy Years, vol. 1, Tokyo, 1976, pl. 510.
The bold style of carving is comparable to ovoid vases with a wide everted rim and decorated with fruiting and flowering sprays within rectangular cartouches, such as one in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Yuandai ciqi, Beijing, 1998, pl. 446; and another, from the H.M. Knight collection, sold in our London rooms, 12th May 1970, lot 37.
