November 19, 2016
Vienna, Vienna, AustriaLive Auction
Glazed ceramic. China, late Qing to Republic, approx. 19th cent. – 1st half 20th cent.
Elegant baluster vase with purposeful, gentle swing from the wide foot to the body, enabling the magnificent glaze image to unfold its full expression. This is particularly beautiful and effective, offering three light green drop-formed spots with wine-red flambé on black-violet ground. Neck and mouth have only light green with fine red flowing patterns. Generous craquelé seems to be very inspired. Drop formation inside the mouth. Lightly recessed bottom with white glaze and craquelé. Altogether very special effect, might have been made by a very genial glaze artist. Very good condition.

From the Swiss collection of Jürgen L. Fischer, Ascona
The renowned collector of Chinese porcelain Jürgen L. Fischer lived in Ascona, located in the Swiss Kanton Tessin at Lago Maggiore. The extensive size of the collection is largely owed to the family’s fortune, secured by pharmacist August Fischer and his revolutionary invention – the world’s first adhesive made from synthetic resin, the famous “Uhu Alleskleber”, developed in 1932. Jürgen L. Fischer lived until 2013 and was an avid collector of Chinese porcelain whose astonishing taste encompassed a broad spectrum of types, of all sizes and with origins spanning across millennia. Jürgen Fischer passed on his comprehensive knowledge in numerous text books – among others, his large and very instructive book about the art of Chinese snuff bottles and also an antiquarian’s guide to Chinese art.
Jürgen L. Fischer 先生是歐洲人收藏中國美術品第一個藏家至一。Fischer先生的祖父August Fischer 在 1932 年曾發明了所謂 “Uhu“ 膠水”，成為世界上第一種化學膠水，幫家庭經濟情況提高，讓其美術作品收藏天天增加。 Jürgen L. Fischer 先生失去於2013年，其收藏活動最多集中於中國個個時代，個大小以及個風格的陶瓷品。Jürgen L.Fischer先生的懂此學科很深，他也曾編幾本專門書籍。其中有關鼻煙壺以及收藏中國美術的專書最為出名。
