Auctions is pleased to offer a gorgeous Chinese blue and white wares glazed porcelain classic meiping form Vase, with traditional landscape motifs and a late Qing dynasty Kangxi reign mark. White porcelain decorated with blue painted under the glaze is among the most famous of all Chinese porcelain. Under-glaze blue had been used in the Middle East at least as early as the 9th century.The envy of potters and collectors in Europe and the Middle East, Chinese blue-and-white porcelain owed its excellence to the fine clay available to the Chinese as well as to their high-temperature kilns and the cobalt pigment they used to produce the brilliant hues. Classic shaped vases lend themselves to a wide array of decorative blue and white glazed treatment, including depictions of dragons, carp, landscapes, and floral motifs. One of the most famous of all Chinese porcelain shapes, Meiping, literally meaning "Plum Vase". Was most likely originally intended as a bottle to hold plum wine, while at the same time. A perfect shape to hold a plum branch.
This superb example shows a traditional Chinese festive landscape, which is depicted in a design encompassing the entire vase. It measures 8 inches in diameter by 12.5 inches in height (20.3 cm by 31.7 cm). The bottom shows a four-character Kangxi reign mark. The vase shows wear consistent with use, including scuffs, rubbing, tiny glaze imperfections and stains, but generally is in very good condition. A fine collectors piece for anyone interested in Chinese porcelain.
