Lot Essay


The rich texture and depth of color of the glaze on the present vase recalls the famed langyao glaze of the Kangxi period, and is quite different from the even-textured, liver-red glaze most often seen on wares of the Yongzheng and Qianlong periods.

For other meiping of similar proportions and size, but with more typically seen liver-red glaze, see the Yongzheng-marked example in the Shenyang Imperial Palace Museum and illustrated in The Prime Cultural Relics Collected by the Shenyang Imperial Palace Museum The Chinaware Volume The Second Part, Shenyang, 2008, pp. 12-13, no. 8. A Qianlong-marked meiping from the Ohlmer Collection was included in the exhibition Chinesisches Porzellan, Roemer Museum, Hildesheim, 1981, no. 99.
