There are two different large vignettes with six Chinese beauties in each scene. One scene is indoors and one scene is a garden scene. There are elaborate pieces of furniture indoors with some beauties sitting and some standing. The beauties are all wearing beautiful and traditional clothing.In the garden scene, there are lovely mountains, trees, flowers and grass along with Chinese beauties wearing traditional clothing. Outside of the two large vignettes, there are flowers covering the jar along with a few precious objects. The ground of the jar is white. The decorations are finished in traditional Famille Rose colors of rose, pink, green, blue, yellow, lavender, orange and black. The jar is a substantial size weighing 7.4 pounds and having a height of 10 1/2.
The vase is marked with a iron-red reign mark on the bottom that reads "Da Qing Tongzhi Nian Zhi". This translates to "Great Qing Tongzhi Period Make".
I found records of this mark on Chinese porcelain that date the jar to the third quarter of the 20th century (1950 - 1975). The workmanship on the porcelain vase is very nice with a few common characteristics of older porcelain including pop marks and tiny pitting. These characteristics occured during the making and are not considered to be defects.
There could be surface scratches and small enamel loss from normal use and wear. But overall, the lovely Chinese porcelain jar is in excellent vintage condition.
The stand has a brown stain and rests on four carved feet that turn under. The large stand is sturdy enough to hold the heavy weight of the porcelain jar. The stand is in excellent vintage condition with expected wear. There could be surface scratches, rubs and some variation in the stain. There are no chips, cracks, missing pieces, repairs or damage to the stand.Width across at the widest point: 11. Diameter of base: 6 1/4. Marked: Da Qing Tongzhi Nian Zhi. Label on bottom: Made in Hong Kong. This lovely 10 1/2 vintage Chinese Famille Rose porcelain jar is very beautiful and in wonderful condition. This substantial porcelain jar with vintage stand will be great addition to a collection of Asian arts & antiques. You will enjoy the traditional Chinese jar with your home decor. The Famille Rose colors are wonderful!
