Catalogue Note

Cloisonne shouldered vases of this unusually strongly waisted form are rare. For a vase of related proportions, but diminutive size, see a meiping decorated with a lotus pond in the Uldry Collection, illustrated by Brinker and Lutz, Chinesisches Cloisonne – Die Sammlung Pierre Uldry, Zurich, 1985, pl.41.

The design of ballflowers is unusual for the period and more often associated with Qing dynasty porcelain wares.
