Important Pair of Antique Chinese Porcelain Vases. 23.62 in / 60 cm. Qing Period. 19th Century

Important pair of antique Chinese porcelain vases, 23.62 inches high, from the Qing period and made in the 19th century. Both vases are finely preserved, with no hairlines, cracks or flaws. This is quite a stylish and elegant set, entirely decorated by hand with colorful scenes painted with full detail. The vases have lovely polychrome porcelain appliqués at the top, a detail which makes them even more attractive.

The decoration is exactly the same for both. Over the white porcelain, the body shows a front scene where several male and female figures, dressed in the traditional way, are performing a common task. The scene is colorful and dynamic, and the presence of books and parchments suggests an intellectual labor. At the back of the vases we find a different motif with two birds sitting on the branch of a flowery tree. This is gorgeous naturalist-style scene which stands out for the amazing use of color and detail. The vase’s feet, on the other hand, are decorated with delicate bands which mixes images of birds and geometrical motifs.

The vases’ necks and lips are also beautiful. On both sides we can see scene with traditionally-dressed figures, inserted in square-shaped frames. The scenes are surrounded by intricate bands with floral motifs. Under them, the vases’ shoulders are adorned with a lovely band depicting a vine with rodents on its branches. As we commented before, the vases are also adorned with wonderful porcelain appliqués – we can see two vertically-disponed pairs of animals playing , probably lions, at the neck and two pairs of symmetrical dragons at the shoulder. Last but not least, the lips are decorated with three delicate floral motifs and a golden edge.

This I¡important pair of antique Chinese porcelain vases, 23.62 inches high, from the Qing period is a spectacular piece for its gorgeous decoration, its size and its ancient age.

Dimensions: 23.62 in / 60 cm.
