Unlike ceramics decorated with underglazing, this vase was painted after it was fired. This technique enabled the artist to build up areas and experiment with texture, visible in the stamped pattern along the painted bands and in the embossing of the flowers along the neck. The vase is decorated with a pheasant, a regal phoenix, and two chattering magpies. Originally used to pickle eggs, this container works well today planted with green foliage indoors or out.
