Lot 2910. A rare pair of coral-red ground famille rose vases, Jiaqing six-character seal mark in iron-red and of the period (1796-1820); 13 1/4 in. (33.5 cm.) highEstimate HKD 3,000,000 - HKD 5,000,000Price realised HKD 6,700,000© Christie's Images Ltd 2017

Each vase is finely enamelled and gilt to the body with tasselled lanterns above large lotus blooms and colourful scrolling flowers, all above a lappet band by the foot and below a ruyi-head band. The shoulder is decorated with a keyfret band below a band of stiff leaves, and the neck is decorated with further scrolling lotus supporting a vase filled with millet, all below a further ruyi-head band at the gilt rim. The interior and base are enamelled turquoise, box.

NoteIt is rare to find Jiaqing famille rose vases in pairs. The elaborate decorative scheme seen on the current vases follows closely the designs of the Qianlong period, such as a pair of Qianlong-marked ruby-ground famille rose vases from the Y. C. Chen Collection, sold at Christie’s Hong Kong, 29 May 2013, lot 1922. Compare also to a pair of Jiaqing-marked famille rose vases of similar shape and design, but with handles on the necks, sold at Sotheby’s Hong Kong, 8 April 2011, lot 3076; and a single Jiaqing-marked yellow-ground vase of pear-shaped form, decorated in famille rose with lotus blooms and other auspicious symbols, from the Fonthill Collection and sold at Christie’s Hong Kong, 1 December 2010, lot 2981.
