A LARGE CHINESE KANGXI BLUE-AND-WHITE-PORCELAIN BALUSTER VASE

Qing Dynasty, Kangxi period (1662-1722), circa 1670

Porcelain decorated with floral motives in underglaze blue, the “flames” on the neck are still typical for the Transitional period between the Ming and the Qing dynasty (1630-1660).


H. 45 cm

Note:

Three very similar vases in the former collection of Augustus the Strong (1670-1733) elector of Saxony and king of Poland (1670-1733), are now in the Zwinger Museum in Dresden. Augustus the Strong had a real passion for Chinese and Japanese porcelain as he acknowledged in a letter to Count Jacob Heinrich von Flemming (1667-1728), writing: “Do you know that it is the same with oranges as with porcelain? Namely, that those who have one sickness or the other never believe that they have enough but always feel that they need to have more?"
