Catalogue Note

Lantern-form porcelain vases came into vogue in the Qianlong period and production continued into the 20th century. Vases of this shape were typically decorated in enamels or glazed in 'robin's egg' blue tones, however underglaze blue versions are also known. Two slightly taller Qianlong period underglaze blue lantern-form vases featuring auspicious animals in landscapes are in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Gugong bowuguan cang wenwu zhenpin quanji: qinghua youlihong / The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum: Blue and White Porcelain with Underglaze Red, vol. 3, Hong Kong, 2000, cat. nos 134-135. Another vase of this shape, decorative technique, and date bearing a landscape scene sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 26th November 2014, lot 3258.
