Another beauty, John.
I'd date it ca. 1800 - 1850.
Best,
Joey

Joey, I would probably date it a little later because of the footrim. This next bottle [64mm] features a chi dragon, its tail in it's mouth. From an auction in 2003.

Dear John,

   Another beautiful example, and great provenance.
Even though it is black overlay on milk, the preponderance
of milk glass over black makes this a very pleasing combination.
Whereas if the black was more prominent it would be depressing.
Due to the style of the bats' wings, I'd date this to ca. 1790 - 1830.
Best,
joey

Charll, I really like that bottle to. The other one that I posted earlier was the doucai version which is very rare.

John,

I scrolled up the thread a bit and noticed the "Eight barbarians bearing tribute" bottle.  I really like that bottle.  Elegant form and very nice underglaze tonal composition.

Another bottle [65mm] from the estate of Gary Mack. Low relief carving of 5 bats surrounding a shou character.

Wonderful example, John!

    I have a few that are similar.
The late Robert. Kleiner dated them to ca. 1850 - 1900,
but we all know that means ca. 1865 - 1900 in reality.
Blessings to all on Israel's 76th Independence Day.
Best,
Joey

New find! A nicely painted landscape with a fisherman or woodcutter. The copper well fired.
