Chinese early 18th century famille verte tapering ovoid vase with replacement pierced wooden cover. Excellent over glaze enamelling to show two large panels and three smaller panels of four noble plants issuing from rock work with flying insects and butterflies.

The panels are separated with a verte spotted ribbon with demi flower heads.

The vase is in very good condition and the enamels include blue which is notorious for falling off the body as it is fired at a low temperature, but on this vase all enamels are in excellent condition.

A very elegant example a famille verte vase.
