Lot details

China, c. 1736-1795. The globular body supported on a tall spreading foot and rising to a waisted neck with galleried rim, the shoulder applied with two pierced handles in the form of bats suspending ruyi heads, and further decorated with two raised bowstrings each below the neck and above the foot. Covered overall with a creamy gray glaze suffused with a striking network of black and golden-brown crackle. The recessed base with an underglaze-blue six-character seal mark da Qing Qianlong nianzhi and probably of the period.

Provenance: From a Norwegian private collection.
Condition: Excellent condition with minor wear and firing irregularities. The piercings to the bat-form handles with traces of use including minute nibbling around the openings. The rings now lost.

Weight: 4,424 g
Dimensions: Height 28.7 g

Expert’s note: The high level of control exhibited by the glaze of the present vase, with its razor-sharp black and golden-brown crackle, along with the archaistic yet strictly precise form and the finely executed bowstrings, leaves little doubt that it was made in the 18th century. The bat-form handles are a particularly notable detail, as they once held separately crafted ring handles, probably made of gilt bronze, as evidenced by the piercings from one side to the other and the wear and nibbling around the openings.

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.
