A very fine pair of Chinese famille rose porcelain potiches dating from the nineteenth century.

The shape of the jars is rather like 18th century Export sucriers but somewhat larger and decorated in a style more reminiscent of the Qianlong court. The enamels are thickly applied and bright. I have produced a set of photographs for each pot, the others can been seen as item #4309.

Each pot has a hardwood stand, the rims of these have shrunk over the years and now the pots don't fit too well. They can be displayed safely and it wouldn't be too difficult to shave a little off the inside rims of the stands to make a good fit. Please note that one stand is damaged having lost a foot in an accident.

The jar in this set of pictures is the one on the left of the first picture. It is 20.5 cm high without the stand and the mouth diameter is 12.4 cm. The porcelain is in excellent condition with only a little loss to the enamel here and there. Noted inside the lid is a small firing fault in the glaze, this is inside only.

Please study the photographs.
