Ca. 1800-1850, 19th century
Mid-Qing dynasty
Yixing stoneware with famille rose enamels
W: 20.5 cm, L: 17.5 cm, H: 5.8 cm (without stand); 8.7 cm (with stand)
From a Seattle, Washington estate

An elegant early 19th c. Yixing zisha jardinière, formed in a classical circular “narcissus bowl” shape, and decorated with famille rose enamels. Against a blue enamel ground are matching sets of calligraphic verses. The honeycomb panels seen on the front sides are very typical of the Jiaqing period.

Condition: excellent, with two chips to the rim (one very small, the other 1.4 cm and filled in), and a shallow firing stress cracks (surface only; does not penetrate body) near one foot. [Please view all pictures carefully, as they are part of the condition report.]
