This vintage Chinese porcelain vase with a melon jar shape has a hand-painted scene showing shows two women in a garden, one of whom is showing the other a red box. There is a Chinese inscription on the back of the vase. There are some blemishes to the white underglaze that are visible in the detail photo of the front of the vase. Originally, the vase had a porcelain lid, but the lid has been lost. It came to us with a wooden lid shaped like the porcelain lid. There are no marks on the bottom of the vase. The vase measures 12"H x 9"W.
