Chinese export hexagonal covered jar decorated in brightly colored enamels resembling Straits Chinese Nonya porcelain with a “hundred antiquities” pattern in high relief set against alternating pink, green, and blue grounds. Each of the six sides features two to three moulded relief precious objects, including archaic bronzes, scholar’s items, vases with flowers, antiquities, and auspicious objects. The lid is topped with a peach finial. The base bears a square four-character apocryphal red Qianlong seal mark. Dates from the late Qing dynasty to the early Republic period (circa 1900 - 1920). Stands 10 ½” high to the top of the finial. Very good overall condition with no chips or cracks. Some minor wear to the enamels. There is a tiny area of glaze loss at the top of the jar which appears to be an original firing flaw.
