Catalogue Note

Examples of this type of winepot can be found more typically in Dehua or 'Blanc de Chine' ware.  See a related 'Blanc-de-chine' winepot and cover illustrated in John Ayers, Blanc de Chine. Divine Images in Porcelain, New York, 2002, pl. 21; another with a wooden cover, from the Derek Bolton collection, included in the exhibition Blanc de Chine, S. Marchant and Son, London, 1994, cat.no. 63; and a third published in P.J. Donnelly, Blanc de Chine, London, 1969, pl. 60.c.  Compare also a winepot of related form but with a different cover illustrated in Robert H. Blumenfield, Blanc de Chinese. The Great Porcelain of Dehua, Berkeley, 2002, pl. 41A.

A slightly smaller winepot of similar form was sold in our London rooms, 9th November 2005, lot 253; and another from the Edward T. Chow collection was sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 19th May 1981, lot 469.
