A pair of late 18th century famille rose porcelain beaker vases of square form, decorated with stylised flowers and peaches.

The ‘beaker' or ‘gu' vase found it origins in the Chinese Bronze Age. Though this type of vase with its flared mouth became the archetype of the Yuan Dynasty, the shape never really fell out of fashion. Originally used as a ritual vessel or for drinking wine, it is mostly valued for its decorative form today.
