A Blue and White Chinese Porcelain Flower Vase Mid-19th Century


This mid-19th-century Chinese porcelain flower vase was hand painted in shades of cobalt blue on white ground.
Made in the Xianfeng Era ( 1850-1861), the vase shows an all-around peony pattern of flowers and leaves that originated in the Kangxi Era.
The peony pattern is enhanced by bands of deep blue around the top and base.
Around the top is a band of deep blue rui shapes.
Around the base, we see a decorative band of ogival panels painted in deep blue.
The two deep blue bands create a balanced design and unify the vase’s visual elements.
The straight-sided vase has an everted lip traditional to this shape.
The vase is exquisite, with subtle curves, refined proportions, and a beautiful peony pattern!
The underside has faux marks indicating that the vase was made in the Kangxi Era (1661 to 1722).*

Dimensions:12″ tall x 4.5″ diameter across the top

Condition: Excellent

* Faux marks on Chinese porcelain have been quite common for centuries.
Each generation justified these marks as a way to honor their ancestors.
