Catalogue Note

This vase is outstanding not only for its monumental size but also for the splendidly enameled scene depicting a lush setting of blossoming prunus, narcissus and peonies. Famille-rose vases of this monumental size attributed to the Yongzheng period are rare and were produced with a variety of designs; see a pair with covers painted with figures, sold at Christie’s London, 22nd June 1981, lot 134. Compare also a smaller pair of famille-rose baluster vases of this type, painted with birds and magnolia tree issuing from rocks, from the collections of M.M. Tournet and Luis de Errazu, sold in these rooms, 20th March 2007, lot 805.
