Large Chinese Export Vase, Rose Mandarin, "Gold in Hair", Antique 19th C
The beautifully simple form of this large vase is not typical of the Rose Canton (or Rose Famille) group of porcelains. It is unmarked. Touches of gold are carefully painted to accent the women's hair. This denotes a fine quality of Chinese Export porcelain. I date this vase c. 1850.
The vase is 13-3/4" (35 cm) high. The diameter of the mouth is 8-1/4" (21 cm). The bottom of the vase extends only to the base of the rounded center. You can see in the photo that there is a 4" (10 cm) open space at the foot of the vase.
The condition is very good, with no cracks or repairs. There are several small, shallow chips at the outside mouth of the vase. Fortunately, they are all on one side, so the vase can be displayed with none of the chips showing.
