This pair of Chinese blue and white moon flasks date to the 19th century of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911). The body of each vase is fully decorated with floral scroll patterns, executed in a freehand and vibrant style.
The flower design in the center of the body is reminiscent of Xifan hua, or “Flowers of the Western Regions,” an important decoration that can often be identified on earlier Qing porcelains. The decorative handles on each moon flask are in the form of two chi-dragons, designs that can be found on classical bronzes. This gives these Qing era moon flasks an archaic touch.
In Chinese society, archaic designs originating from the Prehistoric dynasties of Shang and Zhou (circa 3000 BCE) are thought be unparalleled in their historic and artistic value. This pair of lovely flasks can be a good companion to any contemporary or traditional home.
