A generously proportioned famille rose vase with gilded highlights.

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 vase is of good scale and proportion. It has four false, gilt handles in the shape of traditional fu lions. The individual panels depict scenes with figures in an architectural setting as well as designs with butterflies, birds and flowers. The colours are extraordinarily vibrant and rich.
Height 15.00 inch (38.10 cm)
