Footnotes

  • Kangxi period vases of this very large form and with this decoration are extremely rare. Compare, however, a related pair of double-gourd vases and cover (the largest 95cm high) painted in underglaze-blue and copper-red with a similar design, sold at Sotheby's London, 10 November 2004, lot 628, where the catalogue footnote mentions that correspondence with Dr Eva Strober, curator of the Oriental Department in Dresden, has confirmed that five other vases of this form and painting are recorded in the 1721 inventory list of the collection of Augustus the Strong.
