This is a marvelous Mandarin porcelain cider jug with twisted handle and gilt foo dog on its lid. Butterflies among peonies and chrysanthemums on a gilt ground decorate the borders along the cover and neck. Encircling the pot's celadon ground, a majestic scene of courtly life shows an interior with royalty and attendants richly garbed, the exterior enhanced by a rich visual of leafy boughs and flowers. This jug does have some loss to the enamel indicative of its age, other wise, it is in very good condition and would be an asset to any fine Mandarin collection. Height: 10" Early 19th Century, China
