Antique Chinese Flambe Vase
The bottle neck vase has a slightly flaring mouth with glaze variation from grayish white and blue to deep red and purple. The rim appears to have been treated with Batavian glaze to protect the mouth rim. The vase has been pictured with different degrees of lighting to highlight the brilliant display of colors. The globular body tapers to a staggered foot with the colors lightening as the glaze nears the foot ring. The base is marked with a 6 character Guangxu mark in underglaze blue. I've provided several pictures of the foot ring to assist in your assessment of the piece.
The vase is approximately 16 inches tall and 7 inches across the globular body. There is no damage. There is crazing as well as glaze contraction and some pitting as is consistent with age. This piece is even more beautiful in person.
