Kangxi Pair of Double Gourd Miniature Bottle Vases

Chinese Early 18th Century matched pair of miniature double gourd vases. The top part painted with a geometric style pattern I under glaze blue. The bottom section glazed with a pale celadon below a café au lait line.
vases like these were brought across as the merchants samples and were used to show would be buyers the shapes, patterns and colours that could be made. Once they were no longer needed they became toys or Dolls house furniture.
To make paint and glaze on such a small scale was incredibly difficult and they are always of the highest quality


Overall very good small loss of glaze to one are on one bottle.
