A magnificent Chinese Yue celadon-glazed ‘lotus’ vase and cover
Five dynasties, 10th century
The ovoid vase carved with seven lotus leaves, the shoulder applied with four knobs below the cylindrical neck, the domed flower-form cover with branch finial, covered in a pale seagreen glaze suffused with a delicate crackle and pooling at the recesses, the glaze stopping short above the foot, revealing the burnt orange and cream buff.
H. 14.2 cm
