Pair Antique Chinese Swatow Ware Vases Jars 17/18c Century Or Earlier Ming For Sale
Pair Antique Chinese Swatow Ware Vases Jars 17/18C Century Or Earlier Ming We are pleased to offer this nice pair of early Chinese polychrome Swatow ware vases or jars. One is decorated with 3 foo lions and 3 round symbols, the other is decorated with 2 foo lions and 2 round symbols. They date to the 17th/18th century or possibly even earlier. They are approximately 5 1/2 inches tall. Overall the condition is good, especially considering their age. There are some minor chips and hairline cracks ( please see close up photos ). The vase with 3 lions has some wear and enamel loss, a small old hairline crack at the neck, some flakes around the top rim and a chip on the inside of the footrim. The vase with 2 lions has outside wear and enamel loss, a couple of old spider cracks on the inside which do not go through the vase, a couple of chips on the footrim and an imperfection and little gap from the original making on the footrim. The wear on these vases is noticable and typical, but to me the rim chips etc... do not detract much from the overall appearance of these vases and are typical of wares of this age. These unusual early Chinese vases are fresh from an old estate.
