This is a very beautiful early "Ming Guo" or early Chinese Republic (1912-1950) fine famille rose Tianqiuping vase. The vase depicts spring season with many flowers blooming and four colorful butterflies scattered around and flying about the flowers. The flowers consist of peony, daisy and prunus with some bamboo and grasses in it. The prunus is shown growing out in all directions. There is also a short poetry about the flowers written on the vase. The base bears the honorific reign mark of emperor Qianlong.
The Tianqiuping vase is in very good condition. No hairline crack, no chip or crack, no glaze fritting or repair and restoration. There is only a very minute manufacturing depression on the body, which is skillfully painted over as the body of a butterfly. See picture no.3, the right picture with the butterfly at the bottom to the right side. It does not affect the aesthetic of the vase at all and is completely not visible unless you feel it with your hand.
The measurement of the Tianqiuping vase: The height is 34.4cm and the width is 19.5cm.
