Pair of Chinese Petite Oxblood Double Form Vases

About

The distinctive, deep red glaze of this pair of petite and unusual double form vases is called "oxblood" or "sang-de-boeuf" by European collectors. In 18th century China, the imperial court commissioned potters to Revive the ancient, and notoriously difficult, art of creating this particular color of glaze.
