In the early seventeenth century in Europe began to actively import porcelain from China with amazing ornaments and hand-painted.
The trade of the East India company brought their ships of various Chinese goods - ivory, clear and light porcelain,
lacquer ware the finest, flowing like water, silk, screens and fine Chinese furniture. First in Europe got single goods, over time the party became more. Europe fell in love with Chinese goods, the problem was one — all the strange things were prohibitively expensive, and afford them could only the rich know. Not wanting to put up with this injustice, the European masters and
many manufacturers started to imitate Chinese goods. That is exactly what originated the style of chinoiserie.
In the late 18th century and in the 19th century, when Bohemian glass became actively conquer the global markets largely outperforming the Murano, the paintings began to appear in Chinese and Japanese motifs. So the style of chinoiserie appeared in the glass industry.
The painting on the vase presents to you a vivid example of hand painted chinoiserie.
Interesting fact!!! Many believe that is not a vase and a leg for a kerosene lamp, this zablujdenie!!!! Many years studying the history of Bohemian glass I found that these vases originally produced primarily as a vase, as the glass factory didn't do the kerosene lamp. And such forms of vases were made in the 18th century, when kerosene lamps have not been, it is then this form was adapted to the lamp. In my collection there are vases ( same shape but different in size) of the late 18th century and early 19th century and naturally they could not be made as the legs of the light. Just in time, after the invention, in the second half of the NINETEENTH century, the Lviv tinsmith Adam Bratkovsky kerosene lamps these vases began to fit under the oil lamp, rich customers. Massively these vases are never produced as many vases were painted by the academic painters and by order. In many museums of the world where there is an exhibition of ancient glass, these vases represented as a vase and not as a leg lamp.
