Artistic, expertly hand painted, well potted porcelain vase that has the look of a vase from the Kangxi era, although it is likely later. The potting is thin enough to show the shadow of your hand when held against a light.

Thinly potted white porcelain that has a mountain scene painted in underglaze cobalt blue. The cobalt is a nice dark deep blue. The body glaze is a nice white with hardly any bluish cast. The glaze feels smooth, slick, and unctuous. It looks shiny. The shape of the vase is a classic Kangxi Rouleau shape. The round banded mouth undercuts to a cylindrical neck with a ridge near the shoulder. The shoulder rounds to an ovoid body which then tapers to a round slightly raised foot. The foot ring is not glazed but the base. The foot ring is rough. There is good glaze control. Just stopping above the foot.

MEASUREMENTS
8 1 /8” (20.6 cm) tall x 3 ½” (8.9 cm) diameter. Weighs 13.4 oz (380 g)

CONDITION
The vase has no chips or breaks. There is a concussion mark on the mouth rim. It is small and does not show. There are small kiln flaws like black spots and minute dimples. There are small irregular wear marks.

A work of art on a white background that is visually compelling. The painting just draws you in.
