Two Chinese late Qing dynasty Guangxu period porcelain lidded ginger jars densely decorated around the circumference in famille rose enamels with a continuous spring fishing festival scene. This pattern is often referred to as the "one hundred boys" motif. Children are on the street performing the dragon dance, participants are seated in a dragon boat, and onlookers watch from a bridge and a traditional building. A large pine tree set against a mountain decorates the back of the jar. The interior and bases are glazed while the low, rounded foot rims are unglazed and have a small amount of kiln grit adhering. The lids are decorated with children. Each measures about 9" high to the top of the finial by about 8" diameter. 19th century. Very good overall condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is some rubbing of the overglaze enamels. One lid is slightly small for the opening. From the private collection of a former American resident in Guangzhou and Beijing from 1983-1987.
