Compare a very similar vase with the same inscription sold in these rooms, 17th-18th March 2015, lot 382. The inscription matches one from a Western Zhou dynasty xu, its whereabouts unknown, but its likeness and inscription preserved in ink rubbings. See also another similar vessel sold in our London rooms, 10th November 2010, lot 19. A larger related example, with an additional band of decoration and a different inscription, sold in these rooms, 20th March 2012, lot 77.


Leslie Gifford Kilborn was born into a family of missionary doctors who resided in China from 1891 to 1960. The Kilborns advanced the knowledge of Western medicine in China, and helped established the West China Union University in Chengdu, a highly regarded medical university that is still in operation today. Over the years, they amassed a wide range of Chinese art and antiques, many gifted to them by high officials and dignitaries.
