Seal mark and period of Qianlong

清乾隆 青花纏枝番蓮六聯瓶 《大清乾隆年製》款


superbly constructed with six amphora-shaped vases cut to be joined together to form a single vessel, each vessel with a tall cylindrical neck encircled with a raised band and surmounted by a wide flaring rim, the lobed exterior superbly painted with five large lotus blooms borne on undulating leafy scrolls issuing smaller blossoms, below ruyi and lappet borders encircling each neck, the base of the central larger vase inscribed with a six-character seal mark, Japanese wood box

24 cm

The vase is in excellent condition except on the vase at the 7 o'clock position of the mark, there is a natural luting hairline crack around the joint of the shoulder and neck, and associated fine glaze crackles on the neck, which are now stabilised professionally, below an approx. 3.8 cm retouched crack to the mouth-rim with two associated minuscule flakes and hairlines.

整體品相良好,僅見頸、肩接駁口約7點鐘位置一處窰線,並導致頸部釉面開片,現已經加固,上方口沿有約3.8公分之半圓沖線經修飾,並有兩處微磕經補及相關細沖。
