A very fine and rare celadon vase with carved decoration | Result 31.000 €

China, Kangxi-period (1661-1722). Porcelain with light green glaze. Bellied body with tall neck. At the wall revolving pattern with circular reserves. The reserves with a fine relief of stylised mythical creatures after archaic models. Bottom and mark glazed. Six-character Kangxi-mark. H. 37 cm. - Similar exquisit examples of celadon-objects with underglaze relief can be found in important museums around the globe, e.g. Topkapi Sarayi Istanbul. The motif of the circular reserve with stylised beasts is also documented for monochrome glazed waterpots. However, it is very rare for larger pieces.
