Pair of cylinder cases, thinly potted with narrow necks and feet painted in mirror image with birds perched among flowering prunus plants. Accented red hand drawn borders at the rims and base of each vase with a poem on the opposite side.
On the base of each is a red overglaze seal of Liu Yucen.
Condition: On one of the vases, there is the remnants of a Jianding export seal. Next to this seal is a glaze crack, most likely from trying to remove the seal. This glaze crack does not extend to the inside of the vase and is approximately 3" in length. I have shown a picture of this glaze crack. The other vase is in very good condition.
These vases are approximately 8" high and 3" in diameter.
