Vase with slender ovoid body, straight neck and spreading lip. Painted in famille verte enamels, with panels of various shapes - square, gourd, leaf, and pomegranate – on brocade ground of dotted green strewn with blossoms and butterflies. In two of them are landscapes with figures on a causeway, two others with dragons emerging from waves. In one a deer beside a pine tree; two others with storks flying over a pavilion which stands above waves; and another two with attendants of Hsi Wang Mu (Xi Wang Mu) ferrying two large peaches on a raft. On the shoulder, lozenge fret bands with four panels of emblems of the Four Elegant Accomplishments. On the neck, panels of landscape and flowering boughs. Hatched borders.
