The Property of a Lady
A very fine and rare Guanyao-type moonflask
Yongzheng seal mark and of the period
The heavily-potted vase moulded with eight facets around the sides and two convex main faces, the cylindrical neck set with two zoomorphic dragon handles rising to the rounded rim, all on a slightly-domed rectangular base, the glaze of pale lavender-grey tone with an extensive wide light golden-brown craquelure simulating somewhat the Song Dynasty prototype for this kind of Qing Dynasty revival vessel.
