The magnificent famille rose teadust-ground vase is extremely rare and no other example appears to have been documented. It is an outstanding example of Qing dynasty innovation and experimentation during the 18th century in form, glaze and decorative design. Of bold proportions, imposing size and complex decorative and technical design, the vase is a manifestation of Qing dynasty opulence and virtuosity achieved by the master-potters during the
Qianlong period. Made for the pleasure of the emperor and the imperial court, this vase was very possibly the result of a special, arguably unique, commission.
