Published PDF date : Qing 18thCRoom 95 label text:
The outside of this vase is covered with pink glazes which appears mottled. The base and inside has a transparent glaze. Rose pink was first used as a monochrome in the last years of the Kangxi reign about 1720. The shape of this vase suggests that it was made in the 19th century. It is particularly light, made from a type of porcelain which was much admired by collectors in Western Europe.
