A large Kangxi styled vase that has a water motif with applied designs of water plants, lotus and a crane.

A tall Rouleau-shaped vase with a ribbed neck and cylindrical body tapering to a round unglazed foot. The applied designs are painted in natural colors. The lotus flowers show gradation of the darker pink to white pink. The lotus pads have darker veins and patches. The lower portion of the vase has a lighter color to simulate water. The ground is a thick, soft turquoise glaze. The glaze coats the interior mouth and neck.

The foot shows a reddish color from the fired iron in the clay. The base is glazed and shows the potter’s wheel marks under the glaze. There is the mark CHINA in red on the base center.

13 ½†(31.8 cm) tall x 3†(7.6 cm) diameter Weighs 2 lb 7.3 oz (1110 g)

There are no chips, cracks, or breaks. There are kiln flaws such as grit on the shoulder, bumps and pimples in the body glaze. There is also a small kiln flaw on the foot; I believe this is a kiln flaw and not a ship. There are a few darker green dots in the glaze. Otherwise, the glazes are shiny and bright.

A colorful and decorative handmade vase that will stand out in a room.
