The phoenix tail vase dates from the Bronze Age and has remained a popular shape for its clean lines and graceful curves. Dating from around 1900, this vase depicts a peacock in a lovely garden setting. Lavishly detailed and masterfully painted, the vase demonstrates the high level of craft obtained by Qing-dynasty ceramic artists who used the rich and varied color of newly developed enamel glazes to their fullest advantage. Lace-like cutout handles add to the vase’s delicacy.
