A gu vessel is a Chinese container that was used for wine or ritual offerings during the Shang and Zhou dynasties. The tall and slim vessels have a flared and tapered base and a wider mouth. The high stem cups used during the Neolithic age were an inspiration for the gu vessels. The upcoming I.M. Chait Gallery auction presents gu vases with elaborate and distinct motifs. One highlight is a tall Chinese peach bloom porcelain vase. Created using sectional pottery techniques and joined in the middle, the cylindrical red glazed flaring vase has a trumpet mouth.
The auction features a Chinese yuhuchun porcelain vase with a scrolling floral pattern. Also called yuhuchunping, these pear-shaped vessels were first used as holy water vases in temples during the Tang dynasty. Yuhuchun vases have a slightly flared rim, a linear neck with a broad end, and a large bottom structure. Showcased in this sale is a Chinese four-faceted Zun-vase decorated with floral and bird designs. It has a square shape and side flange. Chinese porcelain Guanyin figurines, bronze sculptures, enameled and lacquered porcelain ware, and gilt decorated woodenware will be available as well.
