A large scale 19th century famille rose Canton porcelain vase and cover, the body decorated with panels depicting courtiers, set upon a floral ground with exotic birds and insects. Minor Chip to rim of lid.
This vase is typical of Canton porcelain made in the 19th century. The positioning of the figurative cartouches upon a stylised naturalistic ground in pink and green glazes is specific to wares produced and exported from this port to Europe and America.
