Lot Essay

It is very rare to find a Longquan vase of this form and large size without handles. Longquan vases of this form typically feature tubular handles, such as the slightly larger vase (31.1 cm.) illustrated in Celadons from Longquan Kilns, Taipei, 1998, pp. 144-145, no. 111, and the two vases also of slightly larger size (31 and 31.2 cm.) uncovered from an underground site in Jinyu Village in Sichuan, and now in the Sichuan Museum, illustrated in Ceramicas Celadon de Longquan Colleccao do Museu de Sichuan, Macao, 1998, pp. 108-109, nos. 22 and 23. Another Longquan bottle vase of comparable large size (32.5 cm. high), but with very unusual small dragon-form handles, formerly in the A.W. Bahr, Horace D. Chapin and Osgood Collections, was sold at Christie’s New York , 20-21 March 2014, lot 2103.
