Catalogue Note

Cloisonné vases of this small size are quite rare.  See two comparable vases, but of a larger size, in the Pierre Uldry Collection, illustrated by Helmut Brinker and Albert Lutz, Chinesisches Cloisonné – Die Sammlung Pierre Uldry, Zurich, 1985, pl. 122 and 123.  Compare also an inspiration to this vase, decorated with scrolling lotus blooms and attributed to the Ming Dynasty, of a slightly larger size, in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum. Metal-bodied Enamel Ware, Hong Kong, 2002, pl. 9.
