A pair of Imari covered vases

A pair of Imari covered vases from China with flower and foliage decorations from the first half of the 18th century.

They are adorned with a beautiful chiseled and gilded bronze trim from the Louis XV period.

In the middle of the 17th century, China experienced a period of political turmoil due to the transition from the Ming dynasty to the Qing dynasty. As the production of porcelain for export was considerably reduced, Europeans sought to find other supplier countries. The Dutch, who had a monopoly on trade with Japan, then began to import Japanese porcelain.

This porcelain is characterized by a decoration using three colors: cobalt blue placed under glaze, iron red and gold placed on glaze. It mainly has floral motifs and was called "Imari" from the name of the port of the island of Kyûshû from which it was exported.

Once the Chinese resumed porcelain production around 1720, they adapted to the European craze for the Imari and produced pieces inspired by Japanese porcelain, the Chinese Imari. The Europeans then turned again to Chinese production centers which offered less expensive parts than Japanese parts.
