A rare globular tianqiuping vase from the Qing Dynasty will be placed on auction on May 30 according to the announcement of auction house Christie's Hong Kong last week.

The vase was originally in the collection of the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The vase has been in their possession since 1960 after it was given to the museum as a gift. However, the museum has now decided to sell the vase and use the proceeds of the sale to expand their Chinese art collection.

Qing Dynasty pieces are well-known for their exceptional patterns and in the time of Qing Emperor Qianlong, imperial kilns and complicated artisanal techniques were used to produce various porcelain pieces of high quality.

The vase is currently on display in Hong Kong since March 31 and will remain on display until April 4. It would then be included in Christie's major spring sale in Hong Kong on May 30.
