c. 1850-1900
Late Qing dynasty
Porcelain with underglaze cobalt blue, celadon glaze, and overglaze famille rose enamels
H: 44.7 cm / 17.6 in W: 22.8 cm / 9 in
From an Austin, Texas private collection, acquired in the 1980s

A large and richly decorated late Qing famille rose vase, decorated with auspicious peaches (for longevity) and bats (fu, for good fortune) against a celadon glazed ground, along with archaistic chilong handles at the neck. This vase had to be fired multiple times, as the celadon ground and underglaze blue branches requires a high temperature firing, while the iron red bats and pink enamel peaches would be low-temperature embellishments.

Condition: the tip section of one handle is a later replacement, otherwise in good antique condition with some age wear to the vase mouth rim. [Please examine all photos carefully, as they are part of the condition report.]
