The very open fretwork on this late 19th century elm wood screen from Hunan Province gives an airy look to the three tall (nearly seven feet) panels. We have seen screens with similarly open fretwork backed with rice paper or silk to produce soft, filtered light, or left open for maximum brightness. In old Chinese houses, this type of screen or panel sometimes was fitted with a removable solid wood piece to back the fretwork, which offered privacy but diminished the beauty...

A MOULDED GOURD SHAPED TEAPOT, KANGXI, C1700.

The body of the pot is moulded in two parts and then luted horizontally. Two ogival panels below a dogtooth border feature different lakeside scenes.

4.1/2” high, approximately 5.3/4” long. The tip of the spout has been lost, I guess that 1/4” to 1/2” is missing. The knop has a little ‘mushkui’, ‘worm-eaten edge’ typical of wares of this period. Other than that the teapot is in perfect condition.

The unusual fretwork on this two-panel screen is more reminiscent of an old European cathedral than 18th century Hubei Province in China where it originated. Although at first glance it looks plain, almost severe, its appeal is in the details. The 12 vertical bars on each panel are separated with 36 small carved designs in two different shapes--one a diamond shape centered with a tiny flower, the other a cross centered with a circle...

A 17th century Chinese interior window panel forms the top of this coffee table that is framed in aged Chinese elm wood. Coffee tables were not part of traditional Chinese furnishings, of course, but we sometimes have them custom made when we find suitably sized and particularly nice antique panels. This relatively spare panel is especially attractive, with the clean lines of its open fretwork emphasized by a few restrained carvings...

A CHINESE EXPORT FAMILLE ROSE TEAPOT, QIANLONG, 18TH CENTURY.

If you are lucky enough to be the buyer, the first thing you will notice when you first see this teapot is its unusually diminutive size. This adds a great deal of charm of course, and also a premium owing to the comparative rarity of these miniatures. There is also the fact that the teapot is in mint condition!

5.1/2” from tip of spout to handle. About 4.1/4” high. No cracks, chips or restoration...

A FINE CHINESE EXPORT JAR & COVER, KANGXI, CIRCA 1700.

The jar with ribbed body decorated with sprays of flowers above and below cloud borders. Unusually, this jar still has its lid, decorated with the pearl of wisdom. Within the foot-rim is a leaf mark in underglaze blue. The porcelain is dense and smooth, just as it should be for the period. The jar dates from the Kangxi reign and was made circa 1700.

5.1/2” high...

A CHINESE KESI ( K’O-SSU ) SILK HANGING, MID 19TH CENTURY.

Collectors of Chinese Kesi silk work will know that it is a type of tapestry weaving cleverly executed so that both sides are equally finished. The dyes used to make the coloured silks were natural organic products and thus subject to fading when exposed to light for a number of years...

A FINE CHINESE EXPORT FAMILLE VERTE BALUSTER VASE & COVER, YONGZHENG OR QIANLONG, 18TH CENTURY.

A very attractive baluster vase made for export to the West around 1740 – 1760. Curiously, one would have expected the use of the comparatively new rose enamel at this time but it is completely lacking on this example...

A CHINESE PORCELAIN WUCAI TEA POT, KANGXI, CIRCA 1700.

Wucai (five coloured ware) is getting increasingly difficult to find these days. Wucai ware originated during the Ming dynasty and was largely superseded by the famille verte palette when an overglaze blue enamel was developed. The five enamel colours of wucai are overglaze green, iron-red, aubergine, yellow and underglaze blue...

An abundance of fine pierced carving gives this 19th century Chinese portal a lighter, more delicate look than generally found in Qing pieces of this scale. The center portion, with its graceful scrolling and carved tassels and beads, obviously was designed to herald the significance of one's passage beneath it. Touches of gilt on the rich red lacquer highlight carvings meant to convey important symbolic messages...

CHINESE GILT BRONZE BUDDHA FOR THE IMPERIAL COURT, QIANLONG, 18TH CENTURY.

This fine gilt bronze Buddha belongs to a small number of identical sculptures, some with Qianlong dates; that are believed to have been made especially for the many Buddhist altars within the Forbidden City. Buddhism was the official religion of the Imperial Qing court. The figure is of high quality but is missing its detachable flame mandorla, the securing lugs of which are still attached to the base...

A GOOD CHINESE BRONZE ARCHAISTIC VASE, 17TH / 18TH CENTURY.

The imitation of the ancient was popular amongst scholars and great lengths were taken by artisans to satisfy their whims, even to the extent of some amazing fake patinas using ground minerals and cinnabar. This vase would appear to be part of that group, the ancient form and decoration complimented by the green and red patina beneath the normal dark surface naturally acquired over the years. The base insert with its cross hat...

SOLD
A rich green glaze with artful touches of brown transforms this late Qing household container into a special object. The end of the small spout was left unglazed. An unusual roughly formed ceramic rope extends from the spout to the body of the jar. In keeping with the container's earthy character, hanging loops around the top are casually formed, and some are green, some brown. This late 19th/early 20th century jar is from Hunan Province in South China. The glaze shows a few firing flaws (see en...
