A great looking bottle Richard. Congratulations!

Steven,
    If you swap image numbers 20 and 21 the order follows the rotation of the bottle in better order.

Hi Tom

It's my fault.

I have named the file sequence incorrectly. Steven just help me to fix the image orientation.

Regards.

All,

I had promised to post this bottle shortly after I received it in February as part of a three bottle purchase.  It took a little longer than expected to get the bottle cataloged with updated pictures.  This is the bottle that is very similar to Richard’s recent acquisition posted earlier in this thread.

A continuation for those who enjoy this type of bottle, Charll



Blue and White Porcelain Dragon Pillar Bottle:
A soft paste porcelain blue and white dragon pillar snuff bottle, of cylindrical shape, with a very short flared neck. Well painted dragon in good tones of underglaze blue with a five clawed scaly dragon chasing a pearl amid flames motif.  A stylized ruyi-head band raps the neck of the bottle.  The bottle throat and base are encircle with a faint finely painted double blue ring.  Bottle has an unglazed counter sunken concentric twelve ring base.  Height is 7.9 cm without stopper by 2.7 cm in diameter. 

Period: Imperial kilns, Jingdezhen, c. 1800-1860.

Provenance: Out of a Private Collection in Omaha Nebraska.  Acquired from a shop at the Plaza Hotel, New York City, ca. 1975.

Another beauty in this genre Charll.

The ruyi-head band at the neck, and the double blue ring punctuation at each end of the cylindrical body are nice touches.

Here is the 'real stunner' in my opinion!  A recent acquisition from Erick Schiess of Jadestone in Portland Oregon.  Likely made a little later than the last bottle.

Another more simplified version for those who enjoy dragon pillar bottles, Charll



Blue and White Porcelain Dragon Pillar Bottle:
A hard paste porcelain blue and white dragon pillar snuff bottle, of cylindrical form, with a broad flared neck.  Well painted five clawed, camel nosed, scaly dragon chasing a simplified flaming pearl.  Wonderful use of light and dark blue tones that provides contrasting characterization to the dragon image.  Unadorned neck and base that facilitates focal attention to the dragon design solely.  Bottle has a flat unglazed twelve ring concentric base.  Height is 8.7 cm without stopper by 2.8 cm in diameter. 

Bottle came with a dome shape coral stopper attached to a thin black nylon collar with an ivory spoon. 

Period: Imperial kilns, Jingdezhen, c. 1820-1860.

Condition: Old repair to a chip on the bottle mouth and minor abrading on the bottle surface.

Provenance: Dewane Maurer collection where he acquired the bottle at a Los Angeles auction in 1990.
