44479 Antique Peking, China, early twentieth century - A lush decorative landscape unfolds with consummate grace across the field of this elegant antique Peking. Flowering trees spring from rocky outcrops surmounted by herons and blue jays, with a mythical phoenix at the very center. The main border consists of cartouches, each with their own interior miniature landscapes, repeating in series against a scalloped or diamond lattice ground. An inner meander border and an outer neutral zone flank the main border. The palette of cool mauves, blues, and sandy gold accentuates the reserved grace of the design.
