Catalogue Note

Compare a Daoguang period ge-type lobed and elongated 'pomegranate' vase, with a Shendetang hallmark on the base and the footring similarly applied with a dark wash, in the collection of the Shanghai Museum, illustrated in Zhou Lili, Shanghai bowuguan cangpin yanjiu daxi: Qingdai Yongzheng-Xuantong guanyao ciqi / Qing Dynasty Official Wares from the Yongzheng to Xuantong Reigns, Shanghai, 2014, pl. 5-19.

Vases of this form became popular in the Qianlong period and continued to be made throughout the 19th century. See a pair of celadon-glazed famille-rose vases of similar form and with the molded ribbon painted with the same key fret diaper ground, attributed to the 19th century, sold in these rooms 18th March 2014, lot 492. A robin's egg-glazed example with a molded gilt ribbon sold in these rooms, 24th April 1975, lot 396. For a Qianlong seal mark and period crackle guan-type glazed vase of this form, without the ribbon, see one illustrated in Regina Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection, vol. II, London, 1994, pl. 876.
