A Famille Verte vase of good scale.
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 vase is of good size and condition. Its palette is rich with highly detailed, linear and crisp decoration. The expertly applied geometric design to top and bottom creates a three-dimensional effect as well as an illusion of texture.
