SUPERB ANTIQUE CHINESE STONEWARE TRUNCATED MEIPING VASE. Magnificent Chinese Chizou ware vase of rare form and superb decoration. The body covered in white slip glaze, then beautifully hand decorated in iron oxide depicting three highly stylized flying phoenix birds, the symbol of rebirth. The body is encircled with two double-line borders, while a clear overglaze envelops the entirety and drips down one side adding unique interest and depth. Absolutely stunning, yet quiet and tasteful presence. The epitome of the Chinese naturalist aesthetic of the period, which collectors seek and treasure to this day. The vase offered herein is most tactilely pleasing with a sublime surface patina. In excellent antique condition bearing age related darkening to the unglazed, slightly flared foot. Quite solidly potted with well thrown walls. This exquisite vase measures approximately 5 inches tall and 4.25 inches wide at the shoulder. Beautiful from every angle with an elegant contour that harmoniously sets off the decoration. A rare and magnificent centerpiece for the discriminating connoisseur of world class Chinese antiques and ceramics. See 12 photos above left.
