Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Porcelain with famille verte enamels on biscuit, tall trumpet-shaped neck on a foot with bevelled ring.
The base is glazed and bears a double empty rings kangxi mark.
It depicts an old flowering prunus that stands next to a stylised rock, the branches of its robust gnarled trunk with many white flowers shaded with yellow and with black stamens.The branches reach up to the top of the vase and surround the entire piece.
Black birds are perching on the branches.
- This vase has been professionally restored at the neck where two pieces had been restuck -
Vases of this size with a green ground decorated with prunus are rare.
