A large scale famille verte vase decorated thorughout with stylised flowers and mythical birds.
Famille verte, meaning ‘the green family’ was developed during the Ming period. Its colours are usually red, green, blue and black, but it is the great variety of greens that really lend the ‘family’ its name.
This large vase, featuring a bird, is decorated in lush and rough green foliage and dark reds, blues and yellows. It was manufactured in the late 19th century for the European market.
