This petite oval jar is decorated with colorful and bold enamels in the style of famille verte porcelain ware. Made with a highly refined paste resulting in an exceptionally fine grade of ceramic ware, famille verte porcelain is identifiable by its vivid green enamels and polychromatic overglaze colors including stunning yellow, red, blue and black.

This small lidded jar features an enameled scene of robed scholars traveling through the countryside on horseback. Accompanied by attendants on foot, the horseback procession wraps around the center of the jar before a backdrop of pine trees and rolling hills. The lid depicts two scholars seated in a courtyard garden drinking rice wine. Delicate butterflies flit throughout the blank space on the back, symbols of joy and longevity. The jar is finished with the reign mark of the Tongzhi period (1862-1874) in red on the base of the jar.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
