This beautiful pair of Canton style famille rose porcelain vases was crafted in China in the latter 19th Century. Each vase features a bulbous body with a domed lid, the porcelain surfaces throughout profusely decorated with Chinese courtly scenes amid instances of traditional motifs—flowers, birds, butterflies, and many other objects. The vases are supported by beautifully carved hardwood stands, the curvilinear form of which complements the curving bodies of the vases.
