Qianlong Famille café au lait glazed miniature bottle vases with two famille rose panels of flowering plants.
Often this type of glazed pieces was referred to as 'Batavian Ware' as the majority of it was exported to Batavia, modern day Java, to be exported to Europe.
Small vases or miniature vases were used rather as the tradesman's samples showing what type of vases in any size could be ordered. The small pieces were then used as toys or dills house pieces.
To pot pieces this small was incredibly difficult and yet they had to be well presented so orders could be acquired.
Excellent example of type.
