A crisply moulded chinese porcelain jar decorated with cranes amongst lotus on a turquoise ground. There is the mark of Wang Bingrong* to the base.
Dating from the late Qing / early republic period, it stands 7 1/2inches (19cms) high inc. lid.
There is one very small frit which can be seen on the edge of the lotus leaf above the beak of the crane, an original, glazed over fault and an original fault inside the lid (See photos). It is in otherwise very good condition.
* Original Wang Bingrong pieces fetch many thousands of pounds. These jars, most people believe, bear a retrospective mark and are priced accordingly. Even so, Christies South Kensington sold one for £1000 (inc, premium) on 9th Sept. 2015.
