A pair of nineteenth century Canton vases decorated throughout with stylised birds, flowers and insects.

Chinese Canton porcelain was manufactured and fired in the kilns of Ching-Te Chen. From there, works were taken to the port at Canton, where finishing touches were applied by local artists and goods were shipped to Europe and America. The large central panel, usually depicting interior or exterior scenes, is one of the trademarks of Canton porcelain as opposed to other Chinese Export porcelain of the same time.

This pair of lamps is delicately and richly decorated in a variety of greens, soft yellows and rich pinks. The central panels reveal spacious areas of white, milky background depicting a playful decoration of flowers and birds.
