Large Chinese porcelain Vase finely hand painted blue and white, circa 1920



This is a very impressive and beautifully hand painted porcelain Chinese baluster Vase raised on a footed base and dating to the early 20th century, circa 1920. This vase has an interesting octagonal shape raised on a low foot and with a slightly flared rim. The vase is very well hand painted in a free flowing manner in various shades of cobalt blue, with a glassy glaze having a slight blue tinge. The main decoration shows two figural scenes painted in panels set among clouds with flying bats. The figure scenes are very well painted, one with three figures sat around a table with two attendants, all among rocks and a large tree. The second panel shows three different figures in a similar setting with mountains and birds in the back ground. There are three different border patterns, one around the foot with blossoms and bamboo set in hexagons, the second is a continuous shoulder pattern of bamboo and the third is around the upper neck rim showing lappets in lotus panels. Please see the images for the detail. The base has no markings on it but we date this vase to the early 20th century, between 1900 and 1930. Approximate dimensions: Height 16.63 inches Maximum width 10.75 inches Base width 8 inches. Approximate weight: 6 Kg. unpacked This is a beautiful piece and makes a very impressive display.
