$4,500Asking Price

About

Material: Ceramic Origin: China Age: Republic period, circa 1915 Size: 23 inches in height. We have a nice collection of oxblood vases currently. As well as black Chinese vases. As designers we plant these vases with orchids or silk flowers and display on coffee tables or consoles. The color of this vase makes it appear modern, the burgundy or pink and blue tones can be used for that calm pop of color a room needs. Sang de boeuf, (French: “oxblood”) also called flambé glaze, a glossy, rich, bloodred glaze often slashed with streaks of purple or turquoise used to decorate pottery, particularly porcelain. The effect is produced by a method of firing that incorporates copper, a method first discovered by the Chinese of the Ming dynasty, probably during the reign of Wanli (1573-1620). Examples of this older work are now extremely rare. The process was at first difficult to control, but it had been mastered by the time of Kanxi (1661-1722) and Qianlong (1736-1796) in the Qing dynasty, and chuihong, or “blown red” glaze ware, became popular. The langyao porcelain of the Qing dynasty was imitated in Europe, especially in the porcelain factory at Sèvres, France, which produced a substantial amount of sang de boeuf in the late 19th century. The process was also used by individual craftspeople, notably the British potter Bernard Moore (1850-1935).
