Peking Chinese Glass Vase with Lots of Carvings in Red Signed on Base

We were very happy to find this vase at a recent auction. As you might already be aware, we handle quite a bit of peking glass - both cameo (carved) and plain. This vase is heavily carved with all kinds of symbols and positive symbols such as butterflies, flying cranes, and magpies - just to mention a few.

Other features include ruyi-shaped and lappet borders, a wave-like background incised into the glass, raised cartouches, clouds, and more!! There is a broad, raised foot and on the base, an incised reign mark.

The vase is in excellent condition and measures 8 1/2" high and is about 5 1/2" in diameter at the widest part and 2 1/2" in diameter at the top rim. At the top rim the glass measures 1/2" thick (!!).
