Well-dressed ladies and spritely children engage in domestic pastimes in this brilliantly detailed porcelain vase. An example of wucai, or “five colors,” ware, this form of multi-colored porcelain begins with a piece that has already been fired with an underglaze of blue. The object is then overglazed with a variety of colors. Like this vase, wucai porcelain made during the latter Qing dynasty was often decorated with finely decorated motifs carefully outlined to give them a vivid quality.
