Vase 1800-1900, Qing dynasty

Vase 1800-1900, Qing dynasty


To make this vase, tiny pieces of coloured glass were placed onto the molten white glass. Then it was probably rolled against a flat iron or marble surface (a marver) to press the colours into the white glass before it was blown into shape. The dragon design was carved into the surface with a wheel after the glass had fully cooled.

Height: 11.1 cm, diameter: 9.3 cm, neck diameter: 3.8 cm
