Chinese antique monochrome porcelain miniature / dolls house bottle vases.

These are very well potted and the glaze is even and of an excellent colour. Both potting and glazing does take considerable dexterity by the potter .

these date from the end of the 18th century and are fine examples of their type

Many small vases were brought back to Europe as samples to show colour and shape and design and the client would place the order and specify size. the small vases were then discarded or sold or possibly given to wealthy clients as gifts for the children which is how many became toys for dolls houses.

The monochrome ware later went on to influence the studio potters and the arts and crafts movement of the early 20th century
