19th century
Late Qing dynasty
Porcelain with underglaze cobalt blue and copper red
Height: 43.2 cm / 17 in
From a Florida estate

A large and charming blue & white narrative vase, with accents of underglaze copper red. The figures portrayed represent the story of Liulang Zhiniu (the cowherd and the weaver maid), in which a humble cowherd falls in love with a fairy (the weaver maid). However, as love between earthly and heavenly beings are categorically forbidden, the cowherd and weaver maid were separated, only to be reunited once a year (on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month).

Condition: perfect antique condition, with no observed flaws. [Please examine all photos carefully; they are part of the condition report.]
