Antique Hand-Painted Porcelain Vase with Scenes from 19th Century, China
A Chinese, 19th century vase with scenes hand-painted on porcelain. This vase adopts a traditional Chinese square shape with a tall flared neck. On the white porcelain background are numerous colorful painted scenes. One scene features Chinese women hand-painted in Western style clothes. Another features a scene with a hand-painted floral arrangement and a peach, both of which are traditionally auspicious patterns in China.
The adjoining sides feature calligraphy and porcelain ring handles. This tall Chinese 19th century hand-painted porcelain vase with a scene would be an exotic decorative item in most homes, perhaps in a dining room where it would add an enjoyable touch.
