Catalogue Note

A Yongzheng marked globular coral-glazed bottle vase with a dragon encircling the cylindrical neck was included in the International Exhibition of Chinese Art, Royal Academy of Arts, London, 1935, cat.no. 2725, from the S.D. Winkworth collection. See also a white-glazed Yongzheng vase sold in our London rooms, 26th April 1966, lot 91, from the Huth Collection.  

Applied decoration on ceramics was a typical Yuan invention; see a qingbai vase of the Yuan dynasty, decorated around the neck in applied high relief with a spiky dragon in pursuit of a 'flaming pearl' sold in our New York rooms, 7th November 1980, lot 87, from the Eugene Bernat collection. This type of decoration was also favoured by Dehua potters; an example of a Dehua vase with an applied qi dragon is published in Rose Kerr and John Ayers, Blanc de Chine, Chicago, 2002, pl. 100, together with a tankard and a winepot with handles in the form of a curled dragon, pls. 101 and 102.
