The form of this tall porcelain vase is called "phoenix tail" for the way its flared mouth and slender waist mimic the shape of the auspicious bird. The vibrant painted scene leaps off the cream field, offering a glimpse of an idealized Qing-dynasty domestic scene. With elegant form and detailed decoration, this vase is a stunning and charming example of Qing-dynasty porcelain.

Minor repairs visible on left handle.
