Height 13 inches (33.02 cm)

A pair of nineteenth century Canton bottle vases, decorated throughout with birds, butterflies and flowers.

Chinese Canton porcelain was manufactured and fired in the kilns of Ching-Te Chen. From there, works were taken to the port at Canton, where finishing touches were applied by local artists and goods were shipped to Europe and America. The large central panel, usually depicting interior or exterior scenes, is one of the trademarks of Canton porcelain as opposed to other Chinese Export porcelain of the same time.

This pair of vases is delicately and richly decorated in a variety of green, soft yellows, oranges and rich pinks. The central panels of oval shape reveal large areas of white, milky background with a playful decoration of flowers, butterflies and birds.
