An early 18th century famille rose vase in the square baluster form, with various still-life antiques and decorative arts in molded relief, and paired with an old custom-fitted hardwood lid. Vases such as this were built by slabs rather than formed through the wheel, and are rarely seen after the 18th century. (Please note that the shipping charge reflects the heaviness of the vase).
