Chinese Qing dynasty export porcelain vase of faceted baluster form, with high slanted shoulders, tall waisted neck, flared rim, and splayed foot decorated in the Canton style in underglaze blue on a white ground with the traditional exotic houses, mountains, ships, and figures. The back holds a calligraphic inscription. Applied to the sides of the neck are two underglaze blue Buddhist lion handles. Stylized bamboo stalks are at the base. The deep recessed base and the interior are glazed. The foot rim is unglazed and has kiln grit adhering. 10 1/8” high. 19th century. The vase has a few old repairs at the corners and underside of the mouth rim that were executed in China. There are faint hairline cracks at the interior of the mouth (see enlargements 9-11). This vase is from the private collection of a former American diplomat to Guangzhou and Beijing from 1983-1987.
