    Provenance
    Collection of John Hill Morgan (1870-1945), Farmington, Connecticut, thence by descent

    John Hill Morgan was a lawyer, prominent collector of Americana, an authority on portraits of George Washington, a professor and assistant curator of American painting at Yale, a New York state legislator and a director of Bank of America. Around 1915, Morgan began a social hobby of collecting Chinese art alongside a group of Brooklyn friends who did business with China and this vase was most likely purchased at that time.

    For a vase with similar glaze, also with Daoguang mark and of the period, see Christie's, London, 8 November 2011, lot 362.
