This is, of course, the crucial question in attributing any kind of artwork to a specific artist or atelier. So by way of example, I've pulled some signed Lao Tian Li pieces from my picture files that feature similar compositions and floral designs:
|Note the peculiar bracket-shaped veins in the leaves, and the spiky symmetrical chrysanthemum petals.|
|The next picture shows the full view of this vase.|
|This vase was the topic of a discussion at the Asian Arts Forum.|
UPDATE: A somewhat similar pattern in a vase pair displayed on a Chinese website. The signature stamp seems to be similar to that used on the lotus pond vase featured in a previous post, perhaps used in the 1920s or later.
Hello. in the last photo the vase there is no characteristic flourishes at the top. Want to show interesting vase on the topic of how to attach a photo?ReplyDelete
The scrollwork is there, the photos just aren't that good. I'll add another photo.ReplyDelete
Blogger doesn't allow photos in comments, so you might try posting your photo to the Asian Art Forum. More people will see it there than on this blog.
