Provenance

Ralph M. Chait Galleries, New York, February 2004.

Literature

Karen Thomson, ed., The Blema and H. Arnold Steinberg Collection, Montreal, 2015, pl. 171.

Catalogue Note

Teadust glazes were developed by Imperial kilns during the Yongzheng period, likely in imitation of bronze. Echoing the ancient gu while incorporating contemporary design with elements such as the fluted sides, the present form is rare. For a slightly larger related example but with plain sides and flanges, see one sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 27th November 2007, lot 1718.
