Subject:I have a couple questions about crackled garniture
Posted By: Endre Mon, Oct 09, 2017 IP: 2602:306:c51c:e200:f

I was wondering if anyone had any experience to share about this garniture or vase. I have not been able to find a reference for this on forum archives or sold archives. It is 43cm (17") tall. I have a couple of questions. Is there a proper name for the collar on the shoulder and foot? Also, I was wondering about the plausible age and origin. I was thinking Chinese, late 19th or early 20th century- but I'm very unsure. The inside is glazed as well and has a couple of drips. I tried to take a more close photo of the bottom, where it looks like it was chipped away for the application of the bezel- which looks like it was cleaned with an abrasive to me. You may not be able to see in the photo, but on even further magnification, there are very small indigo color blue specs in the glaze. Is that typical of a certain glaze or specific kiln? I would appreciate any feedback or comments. Thanks

Here are a couple of photos showing the blue specs. I don't know if they are indicative of anything, but thought I would ask just in case

Dear Endre

Sorry to disappoint you, but I would classify this as a modern object because of the excessively white and smooth footrim.

Kind regards
Jonathan

Thank you for your reply Jonathan, I appreciate it. I suppose the powder mix of the glaze is irrelevant, but do you happen to know the technical term for the applied metalwork on this object? I only paid twenty dollars for this one, so I'm not very disappointed and quite happy for the information. Thanks again!
