Product Details

  • We are pleased to offer this exceptional and large antique Chinese vase decorated with Chinese symbols set with a relief moulded key pattern decorated in Sancai glazes and believed to date from the 19th or early 20th century. This stunning baluster shaped vase has a skirted unglazed foot rim with a raised trumpet shaped top and is very much in the Guangxu (1874-1908) style with very fine decoration by way of an extensive yellow decorated relief moulded key pattern set around central shaped panels with stylized dragons incorporated within a key design and arranged around two central Chinese symbols. The panel is decorated in brown, blue and green. The larger panels are repeated on opposite sides of the body with smaller similar panels in between. Further floral and leaf designs are applied in relief around the neck with a similar stylized key design of dragons above waves around the foot. The vase has a well defined impressed seal mark to the base set between two relief moulded scrolling dragons.
