A pair of large scale crackleware vases, the bodies with blue and white glazes and having matt brown collars and bases.

This type of greyish white stoneware is covered in a net of fine, decorative crackles. Whilst this technique originated in 13th century China, it has sparked particular interest amongst collectors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Its bronze mounts depict clouds and botanical motifs. The large peonies incorporated in the glaze are amongst the first flowers incorporated in Chinese art. The flower “of riches and honour” has, in more recent times, been voted China’s national flower.
