Product Description

A fine example of a Chinese flambé-glazed bottle vase, dating from the reign of the Jiaqing Emperor (1796-1820).

In an attempt to imitate the imperial ‘jun’ wares of the Song Dynasty, it is believed that the personal wills of the Yongzheng Emperor saw this mysterious area of ceramic production revived in the early 18th century.

The vase is a fine example of the glossy ‘Jun Red’ wares made at Jingdezhen around the beginning of the 19th century. Virtue of the high temperatures needed, the glaze would often boil and bubble, leading to solvent separation as it cooled. Additionally the glaze would become so fluid in the kiln that it would overrun the base and need to be ground extensively after firing. The brownish glaze on the bottom of the vase was an innovation of the Jingdezhen potters, who found that a layer of vitreous glaze protected the ceramic base, making it less susceptible to breaking in the kiln.

The charm of the flambé glaze comes with the inability to predict how it will develop in the firing process. The volatility of the oxides and the high temperatures needed, mean that even the most able potter, fails to replicate his wares. Consequently, each vase has an almost living quality, where its appeal is owed greatly to chance.

The vase is of bottle form and is very good condition, aside from the typical roughness to the base, where the vitreous glaze gathers thickly.
