Lot Essay

The form of the present cloisonné vase, with the tapering, faceted sides and chilong-form handles, is very unusual, and only a few other examples are known. Compare the current example with a closely related pair at the Victoria & Albert Museum, illustrated on its website, with the accession no. 509-1875. See, also, a pair sold at Sotheby's London, 11 November 2015, lot 111.
