Chinese 17th /18th century lidded Potiche with famille verte decoration and zoomorphic handles, made during the reign of the Emperor Kangxi at Jingdezhen for export to Europe.
Painted around the main part of the body with two different panels. One shows a pair of peacocks in a garden setting with fence and flowers the other with another garden setting but no peacocks.
The panels are surrounded with a cracked ice band interspersed with flower heads.
The lid is painted with two fan shaped panels decorated with flowers.
the handles are modelled as two confronting dragon heads each biting the pearl between them. The pearl is painted in a pale celadon colour.
The Peacock signifies beauty and dignity and is associated with the wish for finding a husband. The feathers of the peacock are referred to in the peacock throne, where the Empress would sit.
Small glass loss to the underside of the handle
