This interesting jar dates to the early 19th century, and features the eight immortals in molded relief. Its enamels are quite bright and fresh, harkening back to earlier famille rose wares of the Yongzheng & Qianlong periods. This jar’s underglaze porcelain body is meticuously decorated with incised patterns and indented details. It’s also rare to find jars like this with its original lid intact.
