  • 明晚期 掐絲琺瑯花觚

    Compare with a late Ming dynasty gilt-bronze and cloisonné enamel gu of similar form and proportions with a tall base, decorated with a lotus spray design, illustrated in Compendium of Collections in the Palace Museum: Enamels 1, Beijing, 2011, pl.127. The present gu vase is unusual for the single colour used to decorate each lotus blossom, thus achieving a striking visual effect.
