Lot Essay

The majority of opaque turquoise glass vessels which have been published appear to be simple, elegant forms which are undecorated, such as the bottle vase and tripod censer included in the exhibition, Clear as Crystal, Red as Flame, China Institute in America, New York, 1990, illustrated by Brown and Rabiner in the Catalogue, nos. 33 and 34

For an example of this form in transparent blue glass see, A Chorus of Colors, Chinese Glass from Three American Collections, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, 1995, Catalogue, pp. 78-79, no. 47
