    It is very rare to find a vase with such shape and large size.
    The glaze of this Yongzheng vase is a fine copy of early wares.
    During the Yongzheng and Qianlong reigns, Song stonewares, particularly the crackled wares of Ge, Guan and Ru types were very highly regarded by the Emperors. The current vase, while having a shape that refers to ancient bronze forms, is undecorated so as not to detract from its beautiful glaze based on Song dynasty wares.

    Special Notice

    No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT payable at 19.6% (5.5% for books) will be added to the buyer’s premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis
