This lovely and intricately detailed Chinese pitcher dates to the 19th C. The pattern of the porcelain is called Rose Medallion. It is so named because of the rose colored glaze and the many medallion figures as well as the birds and decorations that are scattered across the pitcher. It began to be exported to Western countries in the mid-1800s and remains popular. The right major panel depicts a household with greens, maroons, and blues. The left major panel is more of what you would expect with Rose Medallion - butterflies, birds, and glorious flower blossoms in full bloom. Curvature on the piece is extraordinary. It draws the eye from the bamboo styled handle through the lip of the piece to the edge of the spout. The pitcher is in perfect condition and would make a marvelous collection of Rose Medallion even more spectacular.

H: 4 3/4 in.
