Republic Period Famille Rose Square Form Vase

Roll over for video transcript Famille Rose porcelain is a great favorite of Asian art collectors and is often featured in Michaan's auctions. This uncommonly fine vase features exemplary design elements from top to bottom. The sculptural embellishments near the rim include bat form handles and luscious peaches. The stately square shape provides the optimal base for four delicate miniature paintings depicting classical landscapes, scholars, and elegant ladies. Auspicious motifs and scrolling lotus flowers complete the richly symbolic design. The vase stands just over 13 inches tall and is estimated at $4,000-$6,000.
