Peach-Bloom Paste Box (QPB041301)
Guangxu Period, Qing Dynasty
Porcelain with peach-bloom glaze
D: 7.2 cm, h: 3.5 cm
Cover lid professionally restored to a high standard (it appears to have once been cleanly broken in half)
From a Massachusetts private collection.
Bearing a six-character Kangxi mark, this paste box is a very successful 19th century version of earlier peach-bloom porcelain. Its beauty lies in its fantastic glaze: deep red, punctuated by spots of oxidized green, and bubbling to a lighter pink near the edges. Looking at this piece, one can easily understand how it received its "peach bloom" name; its glaze yields a kind of depth and changeability not unlike the furry skin of a particularly ripe peach.

About Ascot Court Antiques
We are trusted sellers of authentic antique Chinese ceramics. Check out our five star reviews!
Ascot Court Antiques is a family-run gallery based in Moraga, California. We specialize in authentic antique Chinese ceramics. Our clients include local northern Californian collectors and other enthusiasts from the greater international Chinese ceramics community.
The trade and diaspora of Chinese works of art has been truly extraordinary in both temporal and geographical scope. In this sense, we hope to further a long tradition of connoisseurship and intercultural dialogue by safekeeping pieces of aesthetic and historical value. However, we do not believe that collecting is a socioeconomically elite affair: our stock will always mix high-end and rare pieces with affordable but lovely minyao and export wares.
We take pride in our serious devotion to scholarship and research, and are pleased to offer authenticity guarantees to everything in our catalogue.
