This piece is a long-neck vase with floral patterns in foreign colors. It has a long neck, broad shoulders, slightly shrinking body, as well as open and rounded foot. The entire vase is in a blue glaze, decorated with floral patterns in foreign colors. There is almost no patterning on the neck and shoulders, but flowers spread from the shoulders to the body. Toward the other side, peonies are painted in three panels against a blue background. On the other side, flowers with undulating branches, such as plum blossoms, can be seen. The biscuit ceramic is thin, translucent, white and fine. The painting is elegant beyond comparison with contour lines as meticulous as brocade and in varied foreign colors. This gorgeous piece is highlighted by its beautifully arranged, eye-catching floral pattern.
Painted ceramic, like enameled ceramic, originated at the official kiln in the Qing dynasty. The application of foreign colors to ceramic began during the Kangxi reign of the Qing dynasty and matured during the Yongzheng reign of the Qing dynasty, being characterized by special decorative styles. It peaked during the Qianlong reign of the Qing dynasty.
This vase features a fine texture, pure glaze and dignified form. The rich, bright colors boldly display its temperament, which epitomizes the typical style of foreign colors and their use during the Qianlong reign of the Qing dynasty.
