A pair of nineteenth century Canton vases of good scale decorated with alternating panels depicting court scenes and exotic wildlife.

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 is of particularly vibrant colour and engaging design. Further, they are of good hight and well balanced proportion.
