The main part of the body painted with alternating panels of groups of auspicious items associated with the elite scholars including Ruyi head sceptres, Dings and vases. The garlic section of the neck is painted with cracked ice pattern

The vase would have been a very difficult to pot and there is no firing blemishes or off potting
