Extremely rare Koro in the export Cantonese ware. There are two cartouches displaying scenes of people.In one,a domestic scene, someone reading from a script and three characters look on. In the other,a youth bows before a public official seated behind a desk, a servant looking on.Behind the youth are a man and a woman standing,perhaps the parents, meeting a prospective employer.Below each handle are some fantastic and colourful small designs each with gilding.The globular body is supported on three feet,each headed with a mythical beast's face and which have gilded feet to the bottom.Interestingly, the legs each have a seam and an air hole.The famile rose - rose medallion - is the style.
One handle has had a very old wire tie holding it firm.
