Lot details

China, 17th century. The globular body rising from the flat gilt-metal base to a bud-form mouth shaped as five flaring petals. Superbly decorated with a continuous pattern of six lotus blossoms, borne on scrolling leafy vines issuing peaches, executed in delicate white, blue, red, and yellow enamels, all against a rich leaf-green ground, the foot with a turquoise ruyi-head band.

Provenance: English private collection. Christie’s London, 6 June 2000, lot 220. The collection of Asbjorn Lunde, acquired from the above. Asbjorn Lunde (1927-2017) was a New York lawyer and devoted art collector. Over more than 60 years, he built a substantial collection featuring Old Masters, landscape paintings, prints, European sculpture, South Asian painting and sculpture, and Asian decorative arts. Throughout his life, Mr. Lunde supported more than forty museums in New York City, across the United States, and in Europe with loans, gifts, and funding. He was a Fellow and Benefactor at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Condition: Old wear, traces of use and manufacturing flaws. Expected pitting and losses to enamel overall with associated old fills and touchups. The colors are still strong and the gilt is well-preserved, commensurate with age. Shallow surface scratches and extensive wear to base. The enamels with expected crackling.

Weight: 212.5 g
Dimensions: Height 11.5 cm

Literature comparison: Compare to a very similar cloisonné pomegranate-form vessel dated to the early Qing period in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Zhongguo jinyin boli falangqi quanji - 5 - falangqi (1), Beijing, 2002, fig. 141. Compare the lotus decoration on the present lot to the one on a barrel-shaped vase, illustrated in Chinese Cloisonne: The Pierre Uldry Collection, London, 1989, pl. 186. This vase shares its distinct lotus blooms with their curled ends on their leaves and the incorporation of ruyi-shaped petals with the present lot and is dated to the second half of the 17th century.

Auction result comparison: Compare a closely related turquoise-ground cloisonné vase, of near-identical form, closely related size (11.7 cm high), and also dated to the 17th century, at Christie’s Hong Kong in Through Connoisseurs’ Eyes – Ephemeral Flowers, Enduring Art on 3 June 2015, lot 2937, sold for HKD 812,500.
