Chinese early 18th century Pear shaped blue and white bottle vase made during the Emperor Kangxis reign at the kilns of Jingdezhen for export to Europe. Modelled with a long flaring neck above a body on a raised foot Painted in under glaze cobalt blue.

The flared neck and the foot rim are painted with flowers and leaves. The main part of the body is painted to the side with Chrysanthemum heads and scrolling hibiscus dispersed with Taoist emblems.

Ruyi head shaped lappets are on the shoulder and around the base and are filled with Camellia on a blue ground.

Overall a very elegant vase with much symbolism in the painting.

Chrysanthemums are one of the four noble flowers, hibiscus is the symbol of spring and also of honour and riches in life
