Object Description

This pair of Chinese vases, from the city of Canton, are decorated in the so-called famille verte manner, wherein the primary colour tones adorning the scenes painted on the body are of green with red accents. Each vase is ‘mallet shaped’, a traditional shape evident in many Chinese vases of this period, the body being loosely ovoid and the neck slender. The body of each vase is painted with scenes of courtly life interspersed amongst profuse foliage. The vases are mounted to their necks with twin parcel gilt foo dog handles.
