8 Chinese figures surround the shoulder of the vase, men and women in various poses and activities. A flute player, for example, and a pair of players at a board game, with a standing onlooker. The figures are all very well sculpted.
The tallest is 9 (the man observing the gamers). Other than the tan or taupe bisque faces on the male figures and the much off-white bisque face on the standing female figure, the figures are heavily glazed as well. Chinese Shiwan stoneware is often confused with Japanese Sumida Gawa ware. Both often have heavy glazed figures, and both often have well sculpted figures attached. I find no markings or signatures.
It is heavy, as might be expected. I can probably transport it to the local UPS store for professional packing (UPS Store 1112). This is a wonderful piece of sculpture and will be one of your prized accomplishments. The item "Vintage Large Glazed Chinese Shiwan Ware Vase.
