Qing dynasty, 18th century
Height 14⅛ in., 36 cm
The ovoid body is rising from a splayed foot to a waisted neck and stepped incurved rim.
It is finely painted in bright enamels with a continuous vista of lofty peaks towering above terraced fields, elegant pavilions, and a broad river.
The landscape is detailed with blue boulders and trees bearing foliage in a spectrum of colors, the scene enlivened with residents variously enjoying the comforts of home, toiling in the fields, or plying the water by boat.
