18/19th century qing dynasty garlic head doucai
Greetings and thank you for calling upon the experts at Mearto to examine your Chinese porcelain garlic neck vase hand-painted with scrolling lotus in the doucai technique. It's a lovely piece, painted in under-glaze blue with over-glaze enamels and yours appears to be in excellent condition, clearly it was well cared for.
I am going to base my assumption that this piece is about 28cm (11") tall. That being the case, in early January, 2019 a perfect match to your vase was offered and sold at international auction. As it is a match and the house reputable, I'd expect yours to fall right in the same range. Were it a tad larger or of a different shape, the value would be a bit higher. If you have any follow-up questions, don't hesitate to ask.
