22" Chinese IVORY Antique Carved Lidded Vase *MONUMENTAL* c 1900 SIGNED

A magnificent large and heavy genuine carved ivory vase, likely a Cantonese export, ca 1900. The piece is signed under the lid. A highly figural Koro/Censer, carved with dragons and mythical beasts. The vase is carved fully in the round and is of cylindrical form, with zoomorphic handles holding two large rings. The entire piece is surrounded in meandering dragons, carved in high relief and set against a flowing scroll motif. The base is covered in delicate scrollwork and figural `ugly faces.' The lid is meticulously carved from one large solid chunk of ivory, and is in itself a work of art (the cylindrical lid is 6 in x 4 in alone!). The vase is on its original carved wood stand. A very rare and one of kind piece.

Condition: Excellent, no damages or repairs. Completely original, with no missing pieces! The lid and the vase are in amazing condition, and was likely kept in a humidified case over the years.

Measurements: Total 22 inches high x 6 in wide x 5 in deep (55 cm x 15 cm x 12.5 cm). Vase and lid alone are 20.5 in x 4.5 in wide x 4 in deep.

A huge, high quality vase worthy of any museum or fine Chinese collection.
