This beautiful porcelain vase was crafted in China in the 19th Century. The vase has a slightly waisted base, a bulbous upper body and broad mouth, with a flared rim.

The body of the vase is painted with images of Chinese figures, animals, buildings and landscapes. These scenes are arranged into white profiles, of varying shape and size, with gilt edges, set against a blue background. The largest white profiles take the form of medallions, which decorate the front and back of the vase body. In one, a group of women are depicted, working on an embroidery, and the other shows a bird, perched on a tree branch.

Two mythological beast heads, with gilt ring handles in their mouths, are mounted onto the sides of the vase. These have green and red heads, and open, expressive eyes. The vase's flared mouth is ringed with colourful, stylised depictions of flowers and butterflies. These have been carefully hand-painted, using bright red, green, blue, and yellow pigments.

With its vibrantly-coloured and beautifully-detailed decoration, this porcelain vase will make a wonderful addition to an interior, be it traditional or contemporary in its style.
