Product Description

A beautiful c1780 Chinese Qianlong reign Suantouping Cast Bronze Lobed Spill Vase.

Often referred to as an onion or garlic vase, given the base’s resemblance to a garlic head. It has a vertical slim neck, finishing in a flower bud like design. The vase is lobed and has an organic set of lines, adding to the garlic look. The vase is heavy, with a substantial thickness of cast bronze, which has been polished to a nice lustre. The vase stands on a small round pedestal base. Condition is extremely good.

The Garlic head vases were first produced in bronze during the Han dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). Their elegant form was reproduced during the 18th century.
