Late Transitional Early Kangxi Chinese blue and white porcelain pair of vases - Gu beakers. Excellent painting of climbing tree peonies to the outside. the inside of the rim painted with a hatched pattern typical of early Kangxi. A double circle goes around the out side of the rim and the base just above the foot rim.

Small pairs of vases like these were often commissioned by Merchants to be used to show what could be made in any size. potting of the small vases took a great deal of skill as they were fiddly and as they were to be used as examples the potting and firing had to be good.
