Catalogue Note

The present vase belongs to a small group of Kangxi-marked underglaze-painted bottle vases featuring dragons coiled around the vessel's neck and shoulder, and is exceptionally rare for the four-character reign mark on its base.


For a related vase, compare a bottle vase painted with a similar dragon above underglaze-blue waves around the base, with a six-character mark, sold at Christie's London, 8th November 2011, lot 383. See also two vases formerly in the Richard Bennett and J. Insley Blair Collections, painted in copper-red but with the dragons' eyes pinpointed in underglaze blue, sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 28th November 2012, lots 2116 and 2117. For example with the three-clawed dragon molded in relief and picked out in copper red, see a pair from the Junkunc Collection, sold in these rooms, 12th September 2018, lot 104.


Brayton Ives (1840-1914) was a Civil War general and president of the Northern Pacific Railway and the New York Stock Exchange. Ives was an avid collector of rare books and art, including Chinese porcelain. His impressive collection was sold by the American Art Association in 1891 and 1915, with the latter sale so immense that a "De Luxe" edition of the catalogue was produced.
