A fine piece of Chinese export Transitional/Kangxi period porcelain decorated in underglaze blue with a charming scene of three young children frolicking in a landscape as their mother proudly looks on. Beautifully potted, painted and glazed quality typical of this period. The marked silver top most likely Dutch and a later addition, complimenting the fine blue decoration, and allowing for what probably was a baluster vase to be transformed into a very impressive tea caddy. Measuring 8″ tall and in very good condition. Transitional/Kangxi period, circa 1640-1660.
