Description

elegantly potted, the full-bodied swelling flask with a flattened globular body of elongated section, surmounted by a slender cylindrical neck flanked by two scroll handles and resting on a slightly concave flat base, exquisitely painted on either side of the body with masterful arrangements of blossoming flowers, with carnations on one side and asters on the other, all between lotus-lappet borders encircling the foot and shoulder, the neck with a band of over-lapping lappets, the handles with small florets and a scroll outlining the sides, the unglazed base with a drilled owner's mark
