Lot details

China, 1736-1795. The remarkably thick-walled, globular body is raised on a short tapered foot and surmounted by a tall cylindrical neck. The transparent glass is of an attractive aquamarine-blue tone. The recessed base with an incised four-character mark Qianlong nianzhi and of the period.

Provenance: From the collection of Ina and Sandford Gadient. Old collector’s label inscribed ‘Ina & Sandford Gadient No. 23’. Ina and Sandford Gadient were collectors of Chinese glass and long-time supporters of the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami in Florida. In 1999, the Museum, an important art institution in the US, hosted an exhibition of over 120 pieces from the Gadient collection including the present lot, titled “Treasures of Chinese Glass Workshops”. The collection has also been exhibited at several other museums across the US (see exhibition section below).
Published: Treasures of Chinese Glass Workshops. A Selection from the Ina and Sandford Gadient Collection, Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami, 1999, Number 24.
Exhibited: The Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, October 2011. The New Orleans Art Museum, May 2004. The Lowe Art Museum, December 1999. The Corning Museum of Glass, September 1996. The Lentz Center of Asian Culture, October 1994. The Honolulu Academy of Art, Hawaii, June 1992.
Condition: Excellent condition with some old wear, minor surface scratches, microscopic nicks and expected manufacturing irregularities, including swirls and bubbles.

Weight: 1,500 g
Dimensions: Height 25 cm

Expert’s note: The overall thickness of the glass, becoming most visible at the massive foot and neck, along with the exceedingly rare color variant of transparent aquamarine blue, indicates that this vase was made rather early during the Qianlong period.

Literature comparison: A related bottle vase of comparable size, also with a Qianlong mark and of the period, is illustrated by Simon Kwan in Early Chinese Glass, Art Museum, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2001, pp. 422-3, no. 218.

Important Changes to Our Terms and Conditions

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our auctions fair and transparent, we recently updated our terms and conditions. We encourage you to read through these updates carefully (§34-50) to make sure you understand them. These updates are specifically designed to protect all serious and committed buyers from bidding against non-payers, who attempt to inflate prices without the intent of paying their auction bills.

For further reading about non-payers at auction, go here: https://www.zacke.at/aboutnonpayers/.

Main points include:

  • Bidders must complete their due diligence and clarify all questions about the objects before the auction. After the auction, Zacke will not answer questions from bidders unless the purchase price has been paid in full. Of course, this does not apply to questions concerning shipping, insurance, customs, etc.
  • A sale cancellation of any kind after the fall of the hammer is not possible. The only exception to this fundamental rule is our guarantee of authenticity [the Guarantee].
  • A Guarantee Claim, however, can only be raised after the purchase price has been paid in full by the buyer and within 45 days after the auction day.

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us at office@zacke.at.

By placing a bid, you agree to our Terms of Auction and Terms and Conditions.
