China, 1736-1795. Finely carved through a single translucent layer of ruby red, dusky pink, emerald green, lemon yellow, and sapphire blue with a continuous scene of ten chilong, seven sinuously coiling on the body and three clambering around the neck chasing their own long multi-furcated tails, all against an opaque white ground. Four-character Qianlong nianzhi mark wheel-cut to the base and of the period.Provenance: French private collection, by repute acquired prior to the year 2000 in Paris.Condition: Good condition with minor wear and expected manufacturing flaws, such as pitting and open swirls, mostly to the interior of the neck, as well as minuscule nicks and losses, one old fill to the foot rim (ca. 3 cm long).Weight: 423.0 gDimensions: Height 19.4 cmThis superb glass vase, so finely decorated with a multi-color overlaid design of chilong and inscribed with a Qianlong four-character mark, is extremely rare. A small number of Qianlong reign-marked overlaid glass vases is recorded in museum collections, but none of the exact same style.Literature comparison: A ruby-red ground glass vase decorated in turquoise blue overlays with flowers and butterflies in the Palace Museum, Beijing is illustrated by Zhang Rong, Lustre of Autumn Water. Glass of the Qing Imperial Workshop, Beijing, 2005, pl. 81, bearing a similar wheel-cut Qianlong nianzhi four-character mark, but within a double square. The same mark is also found on a small glass jar in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated ibid, pl. 79 overlaid with a pair of chilong in emerald green against a rich cobalt-blue ground. For examples of unmarked Qianlong period white-ground multi-color overlaid glass vases of similar decoration style, see a vase decorated with chilong in the Suntory Museum of Art, cataloged as Qianlong/Jiaqing, illustrated in The Glass that Gallé Adored, Glass from the Qing Imperial Collection, Suntory Museum of Art, Tokyo, 2018, p. 104, cat. no. 78, and a vase carved with flowers from the Shorenstein collection, illustrated in C.F.
