Accented by quatrefoil cutouts, this porcelain hat stand is intricately glazed in the famille verte style, a decorative technique that employs opaque overglaze enamels in reds, blues, and greens. The six-sided hat stand is painted on all sides with the Eight Immortals of Taoism, each riding a different mythical creature across open waters. Said to have attained immortality through their studies of the natural world, each of the Eight Immortals represents a different condition in life and together they impart a blessing of prosperity and longevity. The figures are surrounded by crashing waves, finely etched into the white underglaze field.
