A large 17 ½” tall colorful Chinese porcelain vase from the first half of the 19th century that is richly decorated in the Mandarin pattern.
The vase mimics that shape of Kangxi Rouleau vases. Decoration covers the entire vase from lip to foot. There are panels with garden scenes showing life in a household. These are surrounded by paintings of flowers, precious objects, fruit, and butterflies. The paintings are accented by gilding. The gilding is in good shape and is still shiny and gold. The foot is round showing cuts and is unglazed with some grit adhering to it. The base is glazed.
There are no marks or labels.
Provenance: From the Ellis Family collection. Most of the collection was acquired by Dr Robert Hale Ellis of Portland, OR during his regular visits to China and Japan as a physician during the early 20th C. During this time Dr. Ellis collected a large number of Chinese Export porcelains dating from the early 19th Century to the 1930s.

There are no chips, cracks, or breaks. There is wear to the gilding, although some gold ornamentation still shows in their hair. There are kiln flaws such as painting errors, pimples, black spots and bumps. The enamels are bright and fresh looking.
