Description

This piece is inspired by a Chinese Qing dynasty vase from the Qianlong period (1736–1795) in the collection of the National Gallery of Art. As if tossed by a random breeze, dozens of stylized blossoms enliven the pure white porcelain of this beautiful vase. The blossoms are hand-painted and fired using the same technique of famille rose overglaze as the Chinese porcelains in the Gallery collection. The casual elegance of the decoration on this piece was meant to appeal to Japanese tastes so it could be exported to Japan.

  • Handcrafted Chinese porcelain
  • Hand painted
  • 4.75 x 5.5 inches
