Heavy, well potted and painted large Chinese porcelain ribbed vase with paintings of the immortals in a garden with attendants. I love the large flowering tree that expands its branches around most of the vase shading the immortals. Auspicious symbols abound on this well painted vase.

A heavy porcelain vase that has a round body gradually curving to a short neck and wide mouth. The body has a faint ribbing. The glaze on the vase is thick, fairly white, smooth, slick feeling with a shiny look. There are small black spot explosions in the white glaze indicative of this time period. The designs were painted in green, rose, purple, red, white and gray with black used to accent and outline. Gold was used to give line quality to fabrics. There are thin red bands on the mouth, neck and above the foot. The small foot is unglazed with a curve inward. The base is glazed showing the potter’s wheel marks underneath. The glaze stops above the foot.

Although there is a stamped Tongzhi reign mark in Zhuanshu script on the base in red over glaze enamel., we believe this is an excellent 20th Century reproduction

MEASUREMENTS

8 1/4" (21.0 cm) tall x 8" (20.3 cm) diameter. Weighs 5 lb 9.5 oz (2.53 kg)

CONDITION

The vase has no cracks, chips, or breaks. There is some wear to the bands of red around the neck and above the foot. There is a small enamel loss on a butterfly on the neck. The base reign mark, just like the red bands, shows wear. There are kiln flaws like black spots and pinhole glaze misses. The vase enamels are still bright and shiny.

A beautifully painted, large Chinese porcelain vase that has much symbolism. It will add richness and character to your home décor.
