Chinese late Qing dynasty Guangxu period baluster form porcelain vase with trumpet mouth decorated in a dense pattern of underglaze blue flowers and leaves set against a white ground. Two applied underglaze blue Buddhist lion handles are on opposing sides of the waisted neck and four white applied chilong with blue spots are on the shoulder. The interior and base are glazed while the foot rim is unglazed. 9 5/8" high. Circa 1900. Very good overall condition. There is a small, old, barely visible repair on the underside of the mouth (see enlargement 12). This vase is from the private collection of a former American diplomat to Guangzhou and Beijing from 1983-1987.
