Chinese Painted Phoenix Tail Vase

About

The form of this porcelain vase is called "phoenix tail" because of the way its flared mouth and slender waist mimic the shape of the bird. This shape gained popularity during the Qing dynasty. Its hand-painted vibrant landscape offers a glimpse of an idealized scene of the time a woman with beautifully dressed children in a garden, one of the boys teasing a cat with a spider. Chinese porcelain became known worldwide for its beauty and craftsmanship. Over the centuries different styles of vessels went in and out of style.
