Lot 0195
Chinese Ming Dynasty porcelain Meiping vase, sturdily potted in wide body, with swelled round shoulder, waisted gracefully down to flat base, with short neck leading to a banded rim and narrow opening. Delicately decorated around the exterior with variegate tones and shades of cobalt blue under glazed of vigorous dragons amidst flames and clouds. The collar with Longevity Shou characters enclosed within flori-form cartouche, interspersed geometrical wanzi lattice diaper. The foot painted with Qilin amidst flames upon a wavy cresting water. The glaze appearance on the blue painting resembled the texture of an orange peel "ju-pi" (chu-p'i) or a chicken skin. Initiated conjugated mark between lower and upper body can be seen from uneven surface along the shoulder. The glaze terminated slightly before the foot rim, revealed the pale-creme ground with burnt orange and darker spots in the firing with some white glazed spots on foot rim.

Dimensions: 13" H x 8-1/4" Dia.
