'Hundred Treasures' Famille Rose Ginger Jar (GFM061722)
c. 1870 - 1890s, late 19th century
Guangxu period, Qing Dynasty
Porcelain with overglaze famille rose enamels
Height: 33 cm
Diameter (at widest point): 22 cm
From an Arvada, Colorado estate

A large late Qing famille rose lidded ginger jar, of an elongated tapering form and enamel-decorated in the "one hundred treasures" pattern featuring various temple vases, ancestral offerings, auspicious fruits, and Buddhist symbols. The enamels have a fresh and colorful quality associated with the earlier decades of the Guangxu reign. A ruyi collar decorate the shoulder area, while a lappet border occupy the bottom.

Condition: The lid, while decorated in the same style, is slightly too large for this jar and thus mismatched (it is likely from a different antique jar, dated slightly later c. 1900s). There are some original firing flaws to the base and foot of the jar (some glaze imperfections, as well as roughness to the foot rim). There is some minor enamel loss to one area of the green enamel. Overall this jar is in excellent antique condition, with no hairlines and no restorations. [Please examine all photos carefully, as they are part of the condition report.
