For those looking for an impressively sized porcelain Chinese jar, the one we present here should be a worthy contender. It is exceptional in two distinct ways. It has two reserves depicting either domestic vignettes or scenes from Chinese drama. The other distinction of this lidded jar is its gilt ground and effulgence of floral and precious things. The top of the vase is bibbed with alternating roses and shaped panels of floral sprays.The painting is very carefully executed, representing an unusually high amount of time and artistic creativity to balance the myriad elements in such meticulous harmony. The enameling is raised, giving a rich and embossed feel. Over all, the workmanship is of a very high order of quality.
The underside has a Macao mark, placing it mid 20th century.
Condition is outstanding with no material (physical) damage. If you are looking for a special porcelain, you have found one to put on your short list. Besides the impressiveness, the painting posesses a liveliness and verve often absent in other porcelains of this period. Buy the art and we'll throw the vase in for free.
