Chinese Famille Verte early 18th century porcelain garlic necked bottle vase with Islamic style silver mounts.
excellent painting to the main body of a naturalistic scene of tree peonies, Chrysanthemums and grasses with butterflies, birds and flying insects.
the garlic neck is painted with a geometrical design with shaped stylize flower heads.
The white metal is unmarked but tests as silver.
The colours are excellent as is the painting with good detail and design
the garlic neck shaped bottle vases are a very difficult shape to pot and fire successful.
