It's gone very quiet on here of late, I know my buying rate for bottles has reduced to almost nothing and I have been busy with other things but I will try and make an effort to get us into some discussions if I can.

Meanwhile, this is a bottle by Chen ShaoFu who I can find little about other than he painted in the middle period but very similar to Yan Yutian and others of the period in terms of subject matter. Height is 60mm and the bottle is more square than normal.

Regards, Adrian.

Adrian,

Very quiet indeed....
Nice bottle.   I agree with you that this looks stylistically like some bottles by Yan Yutian.
Thanks for sharing it on the Forum.

Cheers,

Rube.

Dear Adrian,
thank you for posting this bottle and for awaken the Forum.
I am impressed, if you have not said the painter, I was almost sure that it was a YYT bottle, especially on the second side.
Nice to know that! And nice bottle.
Kind regards
Giovanni

Dear Adrian et al,

     I also thought it was really quiet. I will ask Clare to send me the photographs she did of all my antique IPSBs etc., and post some.
 
     I have 2 Chen Shaofu bottles, one a landscape, and I'm sorry - I don't see any resemblance to the brush spirit of Yan Yutian.
Best,
Joey
