A really fine Chinese export porcelain covered baluster floor vase with decoration as impressive as its size. Beautifully hand-painted in Famille Rose enamels with a pair of pheasants perched upon rockwork amongst a profusion of flowering peony branches, the shoulder with a richly diapered and ruyi collar border, the motif continued on the cover which is surmounted by an especially gleeful foo lion finial. Measuring 27″ tall x 14″ wide. In especially good condition, a truly lovely object. Qianlong period, 1736-1796.
