Lot Details
Four ceramic wares, comprising:
a white monochrome vase with Qianlong six-character mark; a famille rose vase; a Fahua-style ting with wood stand and cover; and an Arita copper-red and enamelled sleeve vase with unglazed base, 8.5 ins [21cm] high, late 17th Century [4] [damage]


  • For a similar Arita bottle vase, see Soame Jenyns 'Japanese Porcelain'/plate 39B. Jenyns amusingly summarises that: 'These vases are deceptively Chinese in appearance. In fact the single occasion when I saw Hobson mistake a piece of Japanese Porcelain for Chinese was when a visitor brought one of them into the British Museum.'
