Antique Chinese Clobbered Porcelain Vase, C.1770, A/F

18thC. Chinese ‘Clobbered’ Porcelain Vase, A/F



This beautiful example of 18th century ceramics is a vase, made in China for export to the European market.


Standing 7.5” (19cm) tall, it was originally decorated in blue and white and was later ‘clobbered’ – painted with an overlay of bright enamels in a profusion of colourful paints with gold gilding sometime after it arrived in Europe. The practice of clobbering originated from the vast import tax difference between plain blue-and-white and painted polychrome pieces from China – blue and white pieces would be exported and painted here, then marked up and sold on at a great profit; pieces could also be updated years later with new decoration to suit changing fashions. ‘Clobbering’ had largely died out by 1810, and this vase dates to the late 18th century.


The over-painting on this example is particularly attractive; the condition is cosmetically excellent, although as you can see there is a very major staple repair all around (see photos), hence the low price. It is a suitable candidate for a professional restoration, and would look beautiful in any collection.





 It will be very securely wrapped & protected. Domestic U.K. insured delivery costs £5, to the E.U., £10, the U.S. & Canada - £14, Australia & N.Z. £16.

About me


I have collected glass and ceramics, antiques and antiquities for many years, and my shop philosophy is to sell very good antiques at very low prices very quickly so I do not need to carry much stock; larger shops will charge much more, but take much longer than I do to make a sale. Each to their own, then - but that makes my prices ultra-low compared to a bricks-and-mortar antiques shop.


I try to describe everything I sell as honestly as possible, including any damage, issues, or attributions to a maker, in my descriptions. If you have any questions, a problem with a piece you’ve bought, or even further info on a piece I’m selling (always welcome!) please mail me. Please don’t ever leave negative or neutral feedback without speaking to me – we can always come to a solution.
