Lot Essay

The two characters on the base of the vase reading 'Qianli' represent the signature of the renowned lac burgauté artist Jiang Qianli. There is little information on Jiang Qianli, but scholars have recently suggested that he was active in the 17th century. Many later lacquer pieces bear the mark of Qianli, as an homage to the artist.
