Lot details

Expert’s note: The soft and gentle clair-de-lune-glazed wares were highly prized in the Qing dynasty and the color was strictly reserved for imperial porcelain. The glaze was first developed in the Xuande (1426-1435) period, as evidenced by the excavated Xuande-marked stem bowl illustrated by S. Liang, Yuan’s and Ming’s Imperial Porcelains Unearthed from Jingdezhen, Beijing, 1999, page 256, no. 257. However, the glaze did not gain prominence until the Kangxi period, when it was used mostly for scholar’s objects.

China. The cylindrical body rising from a short straight foot to a tubular neck with a galleried rim, the neck encircled by a distinct bow string. The exterior covered overall in a smooth and remarkably even pale blue glaze, the everted rim and interior glazed in white. The recessed base with a double circle in underglaze blue.

Provenance
: The Strong National Museum of Play, accession number 78.17.33 (lacquered to base). Margaret Woodbury Strong (1897-1969) grew up in a prosperous family of collectors. Her interests ranged so widely that by 1960 she had amassed more than 27,000 collectible items and works of art. The vast majority of her collections related in some way to play and as her accumulation grew, Margaret planned a museum to house her collection. It eventually opened to the public in 1982, and grew dramatically over the following decades, expanding its collections, facilities, and resources, now spanning over 285,000 square feet. Today, the Strong National Museum of Play (known as just The Strong Museum or simply The Strong) is the only collections-based museum in the world devoted solely to the study of play.
Condition: Excellent condition with minor old wear and some manufacturing flaws, including dark spots.

Weight: 817.9 g
Dimensions: Height 25.1 cm

During the early Qing dynasty, up until the 1680s, conditions were unsettled in China and the making of Imperial wares as well as the use of reign marks on porcelain was restricted in various ways. During this period, different types of other marks came into use, including empty double circles. The usage of some of these marks continued well into the later Kangxi era and then started again in the 19th century, mostly on Kangxi revival pieces.

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.
