Auctions is pleased to offer a gorgeous contemporary Chinese Peking glass vase. Chinese Peking (Tao Lio Ping) glass or Overlay Carved Glass is a traditional technique produced through a unique process of combining hand blowing, carving and dipping to produce the final form. Objects, usually vessels, are hand blown to their desired shape, carved and then dipped into molten glass, each layer added after the previous one has cooled.Typically, this can be seen by looking at the rings around the rim of the object. Oftentimes, artisans would carve into the layers using lapidary tools to create scenic designs and elaborate motifs.
Aficionados with modern tastes prefer the glass without carving and appreciate the simple beauty of its form and color. It is a lengthy and tedious process that is time consuming and labor intensive.However, the result is exquisite and exotic, and quite unlike carved glass from other countries. Bright colors, such as green, red, yellow and blue, are usually found in overlay glass. This absolutely stunning vase is made of Imperial Yellow (also known as chicken-fat yellow) - perhaps the most famous color found in Peking glass. It measures 6 inches in diameter by 12.25 inches in height (15.2 cm by 31.1 cm). Today, many colors are produced, but yellow still echoes a time when the sleek beauty of the material combined with this single color meant the bearer had been embraced by nobility. The vase is in excellent condition. Guaranteed authentic, it would make a superb addition to any collection of Chinese vases or glass collection in general.
