Rare Chinese vase at Lawrences

Chinese Wanli vaseA rare Chinese porcelain Wanli vase has been consigned to Lawrences Auctioneers of Crewkerne for inclusion in their October Fine Arts Sale

Dating from the reign of Wanli, 1573-1620, and bearing his six character mark to the base, the large vase is of Imperial proportions measuring 52cm high and 50 cm in diameter.

It is decorated with two dragons swirling amongst clouds either side of a mystical character, making it more unusual than most vases which tend to have more geometric decoration and adds weight to the Imperial connection.

Consigned as part of a private estate, it is expected to make between £20000 and £30000 when it is offered for sale on 13th October.
