Here we have a rare Antique Chinese Qing Dynasty monochrome ruby colored enamel glazed porcelain water pot, a six character Yongzheng Mark and Period.
The glaze here is an intense perfect vivid deep ruby pink which in some lights has purple overtones, the form is so perfectly symmetrical it looks almost otherworldly in it's perfection with both the consistency of the glaze and gorgeous proportions and perfection of the shape. There is a consistency in the application and color of the glaze that is breathtaking.
Inside the water pot is glazed a pale pastel blue and the rim is decorated in gold.
In reflected light but not eye visible except we can see light crazing to the glaze consistent with a piece of three hundred years of age.
It measures approximately 4 5/8" in diameter at the base and sits just a tad less than 3" tall (117mm x 76mm).
This exquisite and rare Chinese porcelain water pot is in lovely condition displaying beautifully.
We ship securely worldwide.
The photos form part of the description. Like all complex colors there is a color variation that occurs in different lighting conditions both inside but also outside, even the time of day can make the color of a stone appear a little different. We do our best to show colors as we see them. Color perception is highly individual and some people can perceive more colors than others, also colors can appear somewhat different on different screens and devices due to variations in screen hardware and device display settings.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT 'FAKE' ANTIQUITIES AND ANTIQUES
Unfortunately, many items represented as authentic Antiquities are not genuinely ancient objects at all. Instead they are later reproductions, mostly of very recent manufacture, though a few reproductions of ancient objects are much older. Regardless of age if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely ancient then it becomes a 'fake' antiquity.
Likewise, if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely antique then it becomes a 'fake' antique.
