Here is an exquisite mauve pink and muted orange highly decorated Qing ( pronounced Ching) vase. It is an open work with a decorated blue and white floral inner vase that can be seen though the porcelain carved outer shell with a flashlight or in bright sunlight. This vase measures 15.5inches tall and 9.5 inches wide at the widest point. It weighs about 12 pounds.
There is gold paint lining around each edge of the open work around the landscape panels and also along the orange lower neck rim and the top rim of the vase. There are a few small black spots on the vase that can not be rubbed off. One is on the base near the mark and one is on the inside. The vase is in perfect condition and a real rare beauty. It has been cleaned up a bit from the dust it had on it in storage. The mark on the bottom is in blue and says " Qing The Great Qian Long". For me what really stands out about this vase is the unique colors represenative of the creative and innovative colors Qing porcelain artists created. Also the three landscape painted round panels are painted with wonderful detail. A good idea of what the poems say is that they are about the beauty of the mountains,the cherry tree , a beautiful country home and possibly about going fishing as you can see tiny figures on boats fishing . There is someone crossing a bridge in one of the paintings as well. This vase posses such beauty that it brings about highly sentimental and nostalgic emotions when gazed upon. If your in love with poetic porcelain this will be a most loved shinning star in your collection!
